Georgetown University hosts community Holiday Party
Georgetown University opened its doors Wednesday evening spreading warmth and cheer during their annual community holiday party hosted by President John DeGioia and his wife in conjunction with The Office of External Relations and The Office of Student Affairs.
Associate Vice President of External Relations, Linda Greenan led the hospitality by welcoming guests, including Mayor Vincent Gray, D.C. Councilman-at-Large Vincent Orange, ANC2E Commissioners Ed Solomon and Bill Starrels, Commander Michael Reese of Metropolitan Police Department, Britt Swan, Ray Danieli, Beth Webster, Rokas Beresniovas and many others packing the historic Riggs Library.
The architectural details of the room added to the cozy feeling, along with gingerbread houses, hot chocolate and decorated holiday cookies.
Mayor Gray commended Linda Greenan for her dedication to the community and its respect for her work. He jokingly recalled that he went to the other University. Councilman Orange wished everyone a happy holiday and Linda Greenan thanked everyone for coming out.
The Gospel Choir, as well as the Holy Trinity School Choir, sang Christmas carols putting everyone in a festive mood.
A good time and a good night was had by all.
