MSU Hosts Annual Christmas Gala
STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) — Mississippi State University got into the Christmas spirit Sunday by hosting their annual Christmas Gala.
Former MSU First Lady “Tommie Zacharias” began the festivities with the lighting of the tree in the Mitchell Memorial Library. The event also featured live holiday music, crafts for children and exhibits from the Library’s Special Collections unit. Vendors included quilters, basket weavers, a carver and yarn crafters. School officials say this is a chance for the local community to celebrate the holidays and to see what the library has to offer.
“It’s a way of showcasing the rare and special items that we have here in the library. It’s a great way to start off and kickoff that special time of the year,” says Administrator of Systems, Stephen Cunetto.
The MSU Christmas Gala was free and open to the public.
