The 2021 QCC Winter Holiday Celebration

The 2021 QCC Winter Holiday Celebration will be held on Thursday, December 16, 2021, with a snow date of Friday, December 17, 2021, from 11:30 am -1:30 pm. While the College is minimizing large gatherings, members of the Staff Development Committee are planning an alternative celebration for QCC administration, faculty and staff.

The celebration will include music by members of the QCC ensemble, broadcast via Zoom and boxed holiday lunches for pick-up outside of room 109A and B in the Harrington Learning Center (Carberry Gallery), as well as a delivery of boxed lunches to the QCC’s Downtown and Southbridge locations.

Please RSVP by December 9, 2021 using the survey link below so that the Committee can order the appropriate number of boxed holiday lunches.
