Student government hosts Welcome Back Barbecue


The Fall Welcome Back Barbecue will be Sept. 13 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., sponsored by MCCC Student government.

Other sponsors are Midas Mufflers, Buffalo Wild Wings, Siena Heights University, and MCCC.

Last year, 440 students and faculty were served hot dogs and veggie burgers; about the same number are expected this year.

"The picnic tables for the event are generously loaned to us by the Monroe County Fairgrounds," said Tom Ryder, Campus Community Events/Student Activities coordinator,

DJ Zarza will be providing music for the event.

Midas Mufflers will provide deep-fried goodies like Snickers and Twinkies. Buffalo Wild Wings will be providing samples for students. Hot dogs and veggie burgers, along with carbonated beverages and chips, will be provided by Student Government.

The event will take place in the courtyard outside the La-Z-Boy Centrer. It it rains, the barbecue will move into the Administration Building.

Student clubs and organizations will have tables available for interested students.
