Around Liberty in 90 Words

by Jennifer Schmidt

 Four Ninety-Two
Exhibit Four Ninety-Two debuted in the downtown Riverview Artspace building Friday night. The exhibit is an art show of the accomplishments of Liberty students from VCAR 492, a portfolio class and serves as a chance for senior VCAR majors to showcase their work in a public setting. Students and faculty all came to appreciate hard work and take part in the free, monthly event called First Friday. Photography, graphic art, sculptures, sketches and paintings hung around the room as people mingled and walked around to view each piece. The exhibit is open for the remainder of November. For more information, contact the VCAR department at 582-2285.

Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is again underway across the United States as the holidays approach. OCC is an annual outreach effort of Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse organization. Since 1993, more than 61 million shoeboxes have winged their ways across the globe and into the hands of children that desperately need help.
If you would like to fill a shoebox, they are available by the Champion newsstand next to the bookstore in DeMoss. Visit the Samaritan’s Purse Web site to find out what items are appropriate to include in the shoebox. The Champion will be collecting shoeboxes in the newspaper office until Nov. 21. Please include a check to Samaritan's Purse for $7 to cover postage and handling.

Embroider Me
It's almost that time of year again — the leaves are falling, the cold is coming, and store shelves are already being stocked with Christmas items. But this year, why don't you let the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) help you beat the hectic holiday crowds? SHRM is selling the following personalized, embroidered holiday items: Scarves ($10), Santa hats ($10), Stockings ($10-$15), and Blankets ($15-$20). Each item that you purchase will be custom-made for that special someone on your shopping list. To place your order, please come to the SHRM table that will be located in the back hallway of DeMoss on Tuesday and Thursday, Nov. 11, 12, 18 and 19. Information provided by Timothy Kleiser.
