Santa to Welcome Holiday Season at WTAMU Carol of Lights Nov. 25
CANYON, Texas—Santa Claus will help welcome the holiday season at West Texas A&M University when thousands of lights illuminate the campus during the annual Carol of Lights at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25.
Students, faculty, staff and community members will gather on the south side of Old Main to celebrate the holiday season with the ceremonial lighting of the campus. Miles and miles of Christmas lights will shine from buildings, trees and shrubs. Santa Claus will make a special appearance, and everyone is encouraged to bring a camera for photo opportunities with the jolly elf.
The WTAMU Chorale and the WT Brass Ensemble will be on hand to provide the sounds of Christmas with a selection of traditional holiday music. Those attending will be given lighted candles and invited to sing along.
Members of the U. S. Marine Corps will be there for its annual Toys for Tots Drive. Students, staff, faculty and community members attending are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy (no toy guns, please), and members of the Marine Corps will collect the donations to make Christmas brighter for needy children.
Refreshments will be served in the Old Main foyer following the Carol of Lights ceremony.
The event is hosted by the WTAMU Residence Hall Association and Student Affairs. Community parking for the Carol of Lights will be available east of the McCaslin Hall apartments. For more informations, call Tobie Browder, RHA president, at 806-651-3004.
