The 10th Annual Multicultural Fest was a great success in its new location of the A. Lincoln Commons plaza. Students, faculty, staff and community members enjoyed entertainment including the headliner band, Xperimento, ethnic food and colorful displays. Restaurants, entertainers and exhibitors who have participated for five or more years were recognized in a ceremony, followed by the LLCC Madrigals. Entertainment was simulcast to ESAs who also had special activities.
The Student Life Office would like all faculty and staff to submit their names, rank and branch of service to the Student Life Office. These names will be printed in the Veterans Day Ceremony program to honor those service men and women here at LLCC. Please submit names by Oct. 10th to Michelle.Burger@llcc.edu or by stopping by the Student Life Office.
The 10th annual Multicultural Fest is this Wednesday, Oct. 2 outside the A. Lincoln Commons and is scheduled over two time slots, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 4-6 p.m. Entertainment includes local artists as well as Xperimento, a Florida-based nationally touring multicultural band, performing from 11:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m. A 10th anniversary commemoration will follow. A few volunteers are still needed for various jobs. To sign up, please visit this page and scroll to the right to see all time slots.
