Today will be the annual tree trimming party here at Cogswell College! Located in the lobby, the scent of fresh pine greeted everyone who walked in this morning. The annual get together brings students, teachers, and staff together for a traditional activity that is familiar to much of the Cogswell population. Refreshments are provided, holiday tunes fill the air, and smiles are plastered on the faces of those taking part, watching, and/or stuffing their faces with holiday sweets.
In addition to the small party, the tree trimming is a reminder for faculty, staff, and students to take part in the annual Holiday Wish Drive of Family Giving Tree. During the Cogswell Thanksgiving potluck in November, members of the Cogswell community were given the opportunity to pick up a wish card and fulfill the request of a child this holiday season. At the end of the lunch, every wish card was found to be taken! As a reminder to those who intend on fulfilling a wish, please give your unwrapped gift and the accompanying wish card to Lucy McDonald by December 14th. There are also donation envelopes available if anyone wishes to give a monetary donation.
