EMCC Float Wins Festival of Lights Parade Honor!
Dec 3, 2012
Congratulations to the students and staff at Eastern Maine Community College for the best non-profit float in the 2012 Festival of Lights parade in downtown Bangor. The EMCC float, The Twelve Days of College, was manned with over 60 students and staff dressed in Welding, Firefighting, EMS, Nursing, Medical Radiography, Culinary and Building Construction outfits. Eddy the Eagle and the Athletics department rounded out the song, The Twelve Days of College, written by EMCC’s own Liz Russell. The nine children learning and a teacher from EMCC were cheerfully dressed in elf and Santa suits as they held up signs so parade viewers could sing along. President Barrett, complete with a Santa hat, walked with the float bringing cheer to all around.
