The annual university-wide holiday party hosted by President Alan Merten will be held on Thursday, Dec. 16, from 2:30 to 5 p.m. in the Johnson Center Dewberry Hall.

All Mason faculty and staff members are invited.

This year’s theme is “A Winter Candyland,” and Tamara Day, the lead organizer in Events Management, promises lots of candy and bite-sized treats to eat at the party or take home.

The dance contest with prizes, “which seems to be a pretty big hit,” according to Day, will be back again, as well as a gaming station with a Nintendo Wii.

This year, Day says, some of the menu items are pulled pork barbecue, she-crab soup, mini Reuben sandwiches, Virginia ham, potato latkes, sesame-honey wings and a chocolate fountain for dipping fruits.

Toys for Tots donations will also be collected in the cinema during the party.

For questions concerning the holiday party, contact Day at 703-993-2115.
