Enjoy the Season
Over 400 Merrimack College alumni, friends, students, faculty and staff enjoyed the season at the annual Christmas Celebration, which took place on December 4 at the State Room in Boston. The event gave members of the Merrimack community an opportunity to re-connect with fellow classmates and friends, celebrate the accomplishments of the College over the past year, and share in the spirit of the Christmas season.
The State Room, which boasts magical views of the Boston waterfront and skyline, was adorned with a sparkling Christmas tree focal point, a navy and gold color scheme, and festive holiday decor. The Merrimack College jazz band, concert choir, and Mackapella groups filled the venue with traditional Christmas tunes as guests mingled between the two levels of the venue. In honor of the “season of giving”, guests generously brought toys to donate to the Foster Kids of the Merrimack Valley organization.
The evening provided an opportunity to not only share in celebrating the Christmas holiday, but also to serve as a reminder of the College’s Augustinian tradition and heritage, which calls community members to actively engage the passion and emotion of their hearts, a mission that is genuinely embraced throughout the entire year.
We thank all who were able to join us and wish you a happy, blessed, and peaceful Christmas season and New Year.
