"For This We Give Thanks -- A Musical Celebration of the Harvest"

(11-15-2013)

- "For This We Give Thanks -- A Musical Celebration of the Harvest" will be held at 5 p.m. Nov. 24, 2013, at Adams State University's Leon Memorial to support the Alamosa Emergency Food Bank.

A number of musical groups from local churches as well as ASU's choir will participate in the second-annual event hosted by United Campus Ministry. Included will be prayers and readings from different faith and cultural traditions. Last year, UCM passed the plate for the Guatemalan community laid off at the mushroom farm. This year the "price" of admission will be cash donations or non-perishable (canned or packaged) food for the food bank, which is in great need especially this time of year.

The public is encouraged to attend and contribute to the food bank fundraiser.
