The always well-attended Holiday Lunch was sponsored this year by the Cincinnati State Foundation, as part of the celebration of the College's 50th anniversary.

Retired faculty member and administrator Dan Cayse, who currently serves as a member of the Foundation Board, gave brief remarks on behalf of the Foundation, noting that "every day at Cincinnati State was a joy."

Dan challenged other retirees to help "build and pepetuate our legacy"  by considering support for the College in its 50th year through the recently-founded Heritage Society.

Dr. Posey described some of the College's accomplishments of the past year and a few of the plans for the near future.

Chief of Advancement Elliott Ruther highlighted key moments in the College's 50-year history and listed other events that will mark the 50th anniversary, culminating with a Gala in October 2020.

Elliott, along with Wayne Herbers, also donned "jolly elf" headgear while providing some holiday-themed sing-along entertainment.
