This Wedding is a Killer!
There's a special wedding ceremony happening next week at the college's historic John Nesmith House on Andover Street in Lowell, and murder is on the menu!

And YOU'RE invited to join the wedding guest list! 
 
Murder at the Nesmith House on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28 will spotlight the wedding of Lindi Armitage, the daughter of Gerald and Marjorie Armitage (owners of the Upper Crust Catering Company) and Dillon Jackson, the son of Bob and Sophia Jackson, manager of the Kill-A-Rat pest control company.
 
In the highly-interactive improv performances being staged by MCC theater students under the direction of Performing Arts Chair Karen Oster, guests at the college fundraiser will find themselves plunged into an interactive wedding ceremony that features a murder most foul!
  
As part of the performance, Dillon Jackson and Lindi Armitage have just been married.  But not everyone is happy about the union, particularly Dillon’s father Bob Jackson, an obnoxious egotistic tyrant.  As skeletons tumble from cupboards, one member of the wedding party gets his/her comeuppance.  Enter super sleuth Sherbert Holmes to help YOU, the wedding guests solve the dastardly murder! 
 
Last Halloween was the first time the college Foundation attempted a murder mystery at the historic showplace home.  This year, working off feedback from the 2016 event, the uber-talented theater students are going to draw attendees directly into the performance, looking for their help in solving the nefarious crime. 
 
To join in the murderous fun, visit the event's web page at:  www.middlesex.mass.edu/mystery
 
Tickets are $75, and all proceeds from the event will go toward the MCC Performing Arts Scholarship Fund!  The show starts at 6:30 p.m. each night, and will run until approximately 9 p.m.  Hor d'oeuvres will be served.  There's also a cash bar.
 
For more information, contact Dennis Malvers at 978-656-3027 or via email at malversd@middlesex.mass.edu 
 
Join us, won't you?  And bring your best sleuthing skills!

Parade Best

It was a glorious day beneath cloudless skies as the town of Bedford rolled out its finest for the annual Bedford Day parade this weekend, and front and center was nearly two dozen of MCC's finest student leaders doing the college proud! 

 

The college proudly participates in the parade each year to celebrate the host community for the southern tier of our campuses.  Thousands of revelers line the sides of the Great Road for the Saturday event, which culminates in a packed fair at the town hall offices afterwards, 

State Representative Ken Gordon of Bedford, a huge supporter of MCC's education efforts, was one of the first to greet this year's students even before the official parade kicked off! 

The students were especially happy to say hello to some of the goats and various critters following behind us in the parade.

A banner day all around for President Mabry and our student ambassadors!

The students were wonderfully engaged with the youth along the parade route, passing out candy and recruiting the children to consider being future MCC grads!

A huge thank you to the students from the Student Union Government Association, the Paul Sullivan Leadership Institute/Leadership in Action students, and staff from the President's office, Student Engagement, Admissions, and Alumni Relations, who did the college proud as our goodwill ambassadors for our Bedford partners!  And a special shoutout to Thomas Asiamah from Facilities who's our parade rock star driving the MCC float and proudly displaying the national flags of our student populace!

A White Water Classroom

The MCC Office of Student Engagement spent a beautiful day recently on the rapids at Crabapple White Water Rafting in Charleton, MA.  15 students went on the trip navigating through class 1, 2, and 3 rapids down the Deerfield River.  A mid-day lunch by the river gave everyone a nice break and a chance to rest up for the remainder of the trek down stream.

At the end of the adventure, everyone was thrilled with the experience they had been a part of.  The trip was not only fun, but also provided students a chance to bond and interact with those who went.  MCC Student Engagement hosts one trip per month.  Upcoming events include hiking, paintball, dodgeball, ice skating, and more throughout the school year.

For more information about upcoming rec trips, please contact studentengagement@middlesex.mass.edu
