Coming Events • Holiday Evening at Midland College


Midland College, in partnership with the Midland Chamber of Commerce, cordially invites you to attend our annual Holiday Evening ... a sparkling evening of music, art and merriment, food and fellowship that has become one of West Texas' favorite holiday celebrations. This year's celebration will be held Thursday, December 6, 2012, at the MC Main Campus (3600 N. Garfield, Midland, Texas), and will feature something for everyone.


Come enjoy visits with Santa Claus, as well as complimentary baked goodies, hot chocolate and cider. During the celebration, a vintage Model T truck will be parked outside the Allison Fine Arts Building for anyone who wishes to donate a new unwrapped toy to the “Townsquare Cares” Toy Drive. The truck was donated to MC’s Automotive Technology program by Midlander Charles Priddy. Usually the truck is located at the MC Advanced Technology Center and is used for instructional purposes. However, at Thursday evening’s festivities the truck will be used as a collection receptacle for the toys.
