The Duncan Banner
Lighting of the Christmas tree at Cameron University-Duncan is one of the many ways the city rings in the Christmas season.
This year, the gathering is from 6-8 p.m. Dec. 2 at the Duncan campus, 3100 W. Bois d’Arc. It will be the first year for John McArthur, CU’s president, to light the tree, assisted by Ole Kim, CU mascot.
“This is an annual event everyone really looks forward to,” said Susan Camp, CU-Duncan director. “It is fun for the entire family.”
The reception is an opportunity for the Duncan campus to stay in contact with its community and to stir up the Christmas spirit. It is free and open to all area residents.
“It’s a wonderful time for the community to visit our campus and enjoy some time with our students, faculty and staff,” said Camp.
Hot cocoa, coffee, cupcakes, popcorn balls and cookies will be served during the come-and-go occasion. A favorite activity for kids of all ages is the cookie decorating stations.
Also featured will be horse-drawn carriage rides around the parking lot.
