The Brevard Center was rocking on December 4 when students, staff and guests attended the 2009 Holiday Party. We were singing and dancing and shared good food and even better company as we got together for some fun and games.
Nothing gets the evening off to a great start better than a Limbo contest and the competition was fierce. Everyone went as low as they could go but, in the end, it was Peter Snell who got down and won the prize. Later, David Kates was victorious in an unusual chicken voice contest but had to beat out the other great cluckers, Ryan Therriault, Academic Coordinator, and Sam Kirby. Students outdid staff as Jay Mikush bested Travis McArthur, Residential Coordinator, in a serious contest of musical chairs and Andy Gully took the first door prize home.
Karaoke is always a favorite and the Brevard Center has an amazing group of talented singers. Peter got us up and singing along with “We Are The Champions”. Chris Kennedy changed the pace with a heartfelt rendering of “The Rose” and David showed us some 60’s moves with “Secret Agent Man”. Matt Graham rocked us with “We Will Rock You” and Ryan brought down the house with “Man, I Feel Like A Woman”. Moultrie Woodall and Daniel Eakin took us country with “The Highwayman” and “I Sang Dixie” and Chris, Ashley Titone and Peter brought it all home with “Dancing Queen”. Mama Mia!
Dancing is another favorite activity here and nobody was disappointed. We got out on the floor for the Electric Slide after Jay, Moultrie, Debra Sloan and Ryan lead the way. Ben Kesselhaut, Sam, Ashley and Daniel showed us a few cool moves and Matt proved he can do the Chicken Dance. Later, the ladies took to the floor for “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and Lee Kananack, Joan Williamson, Courtney Frischmann and Sharona Sommer might just be the next contestants on “Dancing with the Stars”.
Thanks to everyone, especially Sharona and Ryan, for making this a special night. DJ Robert Snyder was terrific. Hope to see you in December 2010.
