FCA’s “The Truth” – Operation Christmas Child

By Meagan Ford, Contributing Writer

This week marks the beginning of FCA’s participation in this year’s Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child partners with churches around the world to gather gifts for children in developing countries whose parents can’t afford Christmas gifts.

FCA would like to invite all who are interested to participate alongside them in their effort to fill as many shoeboxes with toys and other gifts for children in need. This is a great way to give to communities that are less fortunate than ours here in the United States. The holidays are a time for giving, so if you are interested in helping out here is a few information on how to get involved.

Science and art come together with ‘Crayfish’ exhibit

By Ian Beabout, Online Editor

On Wednesday, October 28th, The Nutting Gallery opened its latest exhibition, “The Crayfish Invitational.” This exhibit is based on the crayfish research conducted by Dr. Zachary Loughman and features student and professional artwork centered on a crayfish theme.

I’ll freely admit I know absolutely nothing about art, but I couldn’t help but be impressed with the talent on display here. The artwork ranged from a variety of mediums and styles, with conventional paintings, along with photography, mixed media, sculpture and just about anything else you can imagine.
