State Fair Community College invites the community to its annual 'Jingle on the Green' from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 1 on the Sedalia campus.

The event is free, and parking will be available in all campus lots.

At 6 p.m. in Stauffacher Theatre, SFCC President Dr. Brent Bates will give a welcome and opening remarks. The celebration features thousands of luminarias, lavishly decorated trees, musical performances, desserts and drinks, arts, crafts, cookie decorating, and tram rides around campus.

Mr. and Mrs. Santa Clause will visit with children, and Rowdie the Roadrunner and Frosty will spread their holiday cheer throughout the evening.

Attendees will receive a schedule of performances and activities they come on campus. Schools participating this year include vocal performances by SFCC Jazz and Chamber Choirs, Camdenton, School of the Osage, Warsaw, Smith-Cotton, Boonville, Cole Camp, Sacred Heart, Lincoln, and Versailles. Jazz band performances include SFCC, Smith-Cotton, Cole Camp, and Marshall. The schools participating are subject to change.

The SFCC Foundation sponsors Jingle on the Green as a “thank you” to the community. However, this holiday celebration involves an army of volunteers that include SFCC students, faculty and staff as well as area high school students and teachers, community members, organizations and businesses who contribute to the spirit of giving and caring that makes the evening so special.

The SFCC Foundation and college are grateful for all these gracious and giving individuals and organizations.
