MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Georgia College Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC), student-athletes and staff took part in bringing holiday cheer to Green Acres Retirement Home by singing Christmas carols Tuesday evening.
“This was a great idea by SAAC and it was great to get Bobcat student-athletes involved in the community,” said Assistant Athletic Director/Senior Women Administrator Ginger Chaffinch. “They did a wonderful job and everyone really appreciated us being there.
Student-athletes from all GC sports sang “Jingle Bells,” “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and other holiday favorites. A great time was had by all and SAAC hopes to continue their singing tradition next holiday season.
