Students celebrate Holiday on Main by making cards for troops

Randolph College community members made 108 greeting cards to be sent to U.S. military troops during Holiday on Main on Friday.

Holiday on Main is an annual tradition during which the College celebrates the season on the last day of classes before exams. Staff members offer homemade cookies and other treats for the students to enjoy.

This year, students, faculty, and staff decorated holiday cards that were then submitted to the Holiday Mail for Heroes program of the American Red Cross. The Red Cross distributes cards from that program to service members, veterans, and their families.

Other activities included making art on cards from the Maier Museum, decorating sugar cookies, signing up for the Career15 network, and enjoying time together before the stress of exams really kicks in.
