|Lighting of the Green moved indoors tonight|
The Lighting of the Green ceremony has been moved indoors. Students, faculty, staff, and Greater Grand Forks community members are invited to attend the sixth annual Lighting of the Green Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 5 p.m. inside the Memorial Union, near the glass wall. The Lighting of the Green is the University's annual kick-off to the holiday season. In addition to holiday greetings and songs, the program will feature the lighting of the large fir tree on the north lawn of the Memorial Union and the raising of the 125th Anniversary Flag. Refreshments will be provided and the event is free and open to the public.
Following Lighting of the Green, the fraternity and sorority community will host a Parade of Homes from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The names of participating chapters and maps to the houses will be provided at Lighting of the Green. There is no cost for the Parade of Homes, though canned food items will be collected at the participating chapters to be donated to local charities. -- Cassie Gerhardt, Coordinator of Greek Life, Memorial Union, firstname.lastname@example.org, 777-3667.
