VCSU Feeds Students for Holidays

November 19, 2012

College students don’t always have the opportunity to make it home for every holiday, so Valley City State University makes sure students who stay in town over the holidays are provided a nice meal.

VCSU is teaming up with Vicky’s Viking Room to offer a Thanksgiving meal to college students who aren’t able to make it home for the holiday weekend.

“I’ve always felt bad that I know there are students that can’t go home because it’s such a short holiday,” said Kari Stricklin, director of student activities at VCSU.

Blonde on the Prairie: All People Are Needy

November 16, 2012

Out on the prairie my Husband and me.
Are stuck in a our cabin with a very urgent plea.
We have no place to go –not family at least.
To sit and enjoy a good turkey feast.

Now truth be told we’re really quite quirky.
So you shant put it past us that we’d eat something other than turkey.
Pizza Dave makes a frozen pepperoni to boast.
And it’s not beyond me to just eat some garlic toast.

My burly husband deserves something much more inviting.
We wish a church was serving food-it would be well worth the tithing.
Those church ladies can cook this is for certain.
