Winter Festival planned at Frist, Dec. 14

Students, faculty and staff are invited to celebrate at the Frist Campus Center's annual Winter Festival from 3 to 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14, on the center's 100 level. This year's festival will include live music, a variety of desserts and beverages, a live cooking demonstration, classic holiday films, cookie and tote bag decorating, and a knitting circle.

Cookie and tote bag decorating will take place in the East TV Lounge. Both the East and West TV Lounges will be showing various family films, including "The Polar Express," throughout the festival.

Knitters of all skill levels are invited to stop by the knitting circle near the West TV Lounge. Representatives from Pins and Needles, a local knitting and needlepoint store, will be on hand to provide instruction and advice.

Chef Rob Harbison, the culinary concept coordinator in Dining Services, will host a live cooking demonstration at 3:30 p.m., including samples and copies of the recipe. Starting at 4:30 p.m., guitarist Arturo Romay will perform a fusion of Spanish, Latin and contemporary jazz.

Frist also is serving as a collection site for the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank through Sunday, Dec. 16. Donations of food or personal hygiene items can be made near the Mazo Family Game Room on the 100 level.

The Winter Festival is cosponsored by the Department of Dining Services, the Davis International Center, the Office of Community and Regional Affairs, and the Undergraduate Student Government.
