"Fredonia Gives Thanks," a one-of-a-kind opportunity for the campus and community to tour the SUNY Fredonia President's Home and learn about its history, will be held Nov. 10 from 1 to 4 p.m.
SUNY Fredonia President Virginia Horvath, her husband Dr. Brooke Horvath, and the campus Advanced Leadership Development Program will host the open house, which includes a self-guided tour. In the spirit of giving, each guest is asked to bring a non-perishable food item which will be donated to the Friendly Kitchen of Dunkirk.
Fredonia's own a cappella groups such as Some Like It Hot, The Riveters and The Guerrillas will also perform. An array of fall treats and beverages will be served by the Faculty Student Association.
