Staff Council will host a turkey giveaway for staff 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Nov. 18 in the Fiesta Room of Loftin Student Center.

Dee Dixon, Staff Council president, said the giveaway will include games such as “Pin the Waddle on the Turkey,” a dance and a “Turkey Trot” akin to a cakewalk or musical chairs.

“I felt it gave people more of a chance. It increased your chances of winning,” Dixon said of the additional activities that she inaugurated last year.

Dixon said Staff Council receives turkey donations from companies and individuals, but the council is still waiting on donations this year.

Staff at this college includes advisers, academic unit assistants, lab techs and custodians, many of whom are in more need of a turkey than faculty counterparts, Dixon said.

Of all activities last year, Dixon said the dance had the least participation, with only two competitors.

“The people that danced had the best odds,” she said, adding that the council distributed 15 turkeys and five hams.

For more information about the giveaway or to donate a turkey, call Dixon at 210-486-0598.
