Holiday Party and Toy Giveaway 2015

1

On December 5, 2015 the DC Famu Alumni chapter held its holiday party at the Edward C. Mazique Parent Child Center in Washington D.C. New and old faces gathered to engage in some good old fashioned fun, lots of laughs and some mixing and mingling. This festive event included music, beautiful poinsettias and a decorative Christmas tree. There were many tasty items on the menu including home-style chili and curry chicken just to name a few. One of the main highlights of the event was the gift giving and donations. Rattlers showed their support by giving gifts and monetary donations to benefit United Communities Against Poverty Shepherd’s Cove Emergency Shelter for Women & Children.

2015 Freshman Sendoff

 IMG 3283

On August 8, 2015 we had our annual freshman sendoff. We had five incoming freshmen attend the freshman sendoff as well as a number current students and attend this event along with their parents. We had a tremendous number of alumni from the area come as well to see our students, to give them advice and well wishes, and to help with the freshman sendoff. We received advice from parents and students concerning the freshman sendoff in the future as well as activities throughout the year.
