Thanksgiving Luncheon is Coming!

FPU’s annual university-wide Thanksgiving Luncheon is taking place on Tuesday, November 26, from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. in the Special Events Center. The dining hall will be closed for lunch and we encourage all administrators, staff and faculty to rejoice in this celebration of gratitude with our students. Tickets will be on sale beginning Monday, November 18, through Friday, November 22, in the Student Life Office for $4.00 a ticket. This price is the same for employees and students. You can also purchase tickets in the SCC lobby the same week from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. There are a limited number of tickets available, and we have sold out before, so don’t wait to get your ticket!     

The event this year will continue with the table decorating tradition. This year’s table decorating theme for the luncheon is “Welcome to 2094.” The past few months we have been reflecting on Fresno Pacific’s last 75 years, and now we are looking 75 years into the future. What will our lives and everyday things be like or look like? What will FPU and your departments look like? Show us through your table decorations and with what you wear! The department or group who wins will not only gets bragging rights and a trophy but a catered pizza lunch! No university funds may be used to purchase lunch tickets or table decorations.        

For our service project this year, we are collaborating with our very own Sunbird Food Pantry and our International Programs & Services Office. More specific details on items to be donated will be in a future Squawk Box. Donation bins will be in the Student Life Office.
