and Public Relations. "My four-year-old daughter has had a blast each
year, though I've enjoyed it long before she was even born. It's a great
opportunity for students and employees to come together to celebrate
with the whole family."
Special thanks go out to Student Services for planning and hosting the event.
Said Lora Clevenger of Student Services, "I love this event also. It's a lot of fun, and everyone seems to enjoy it!"
