Registration will begin on Nov. 8 for the annual Senior Citizens Holiday Celebration at NOVA's Manassas Campus. This year’s party will take place on Dec. 2 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the campus cafeteria.
The event is free, but reservations are required because space is limited. Seniors may call 703-257-6558 starting on Nov. 8 to make reservations. To keep the process fair, early reservations will not be accepted and each person will be limited to two tickets which will be mailed before the event.
Guests will be treated to a delicious lunch, musical entertainment and a special visit from Santa Claus.
The luncheon is the annual event that faculty, staff and students at the Manassas Campus look forward to each year with great anticipation and joy.
“We enjoy the celebration that signals the start of the holidays for many of us on campus and for our senior friends in the community,” said Patricia Gary, planning committee chair.
