September is "Talk like a Pirate Month" at Dawson Community College! Pirates around the globe are celebrating! Our mascot "Bucky the Buccaneer" has a fine crew of students this year and he invites the community to join them on Wednesday, September 19 at 6p.m. in Toepke Center - 300 College Drive - as they celebrate during a special Buccaneer Open House.
Bring the kids and come up to the college. Enjoy Buccaneer refreshments while you:
Meet the members of the 2012-13 Buccaneer teams (volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball, rodeo, music) and get autographs and pictures of the entire crew.
Select a treasure from the treasure chest, enter the Buccaneer give-away, and enjoy face painting courtesy of DCC’s Early Childhood program. Get a picture with Bucky courtesy of the Art Club and wagon rides provided by the AG Club.
Find out more about what DCC has to offer and how you can save money by using DCC as a spring board to transfer or get into the workforce right away. Members of the Associated Student Body, current students, faculty, staff, and administration will be available to answer questions.
Join the Lil Bucs Club, Bucs Club or, if you are over 60, sign up for your FREE DCC Gold Card which allows you the advantage of Tuition waivers on college courses (fees still apply) and free admittance to cultural and athletic functions (some restrictions apply).
Check out the weight/cardio work-out rooms and see what Kevin Pena and Tracey Clingingsmith are working so hard to enhance with their "Raise the Bar" fund raiser. (free-will donations accepted). Remember Kevin shaved his head for the cause and Tracey’s hair went pink. Now that is some serious Buccaneer fundraising.
A Message from Bucky: “Aye, come and enjoy an evening at YOUR community college
and unleash YOUR inner Buccaneer. We be lookin’ forward to seeing ye.”
If you can’t make it to the college for Bucky’s open house celebrations he still has some fun for you.
