CLC to participate in sexual assault awareness campaign
Central Lakes College’s Diversity Club is participating in the “Say No to Violence Against Women" campaign, in partnership with the Zonta Club of Brainerd.
During the 10-day campaign Monday-Friday from Nov. 28 to Dec. 9, Diversity Club students and a Zonta Club member will be in the South Hall in front of the Brainerd campus cafeteria from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. They will be handing out information resources about sexual assault, informing students of CLC's 1B1 policy on harassment, and asking students to pin an orange ribbon on themselves to support the cause.
They will also have several lifesized banners on display, which are a product from nursing students from Jamestown University. The students wrote common myths about sexual assault on the white boards and wore white masks. The banners also include statistics and facts about sexual assault.

Rock in the Holidays
Rock and Roll Christmas Show at Cragun’s Centre
What do Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, Janis Joplin and Santa Claus have in common? They’re all part of the Rock and Roll Christmas Show (RRXS). For the eighth consecutive year, the holiday season will be raucously kicked off when the RRXS show hits the stage for one show only, Friday, December 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Centre at Cragun’s Resort. A social hour begins at 6:30. As part of the Central Lakes Community Performing Arts Center’s Cultural Arts Series, it’s a show that series producer Patrick Spradlin calls “something you have to see to believe.”
“When I was first approached about presenting this show, I was skeptical,” said Spradlin. “I mean, ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ played in the style of the surfer song ‘Wipeout’? I couldn’t imagine it.”
Skepticism was quickly replaced by awe, according to Spradlin, when he saw the show at the Pioneer Place in St. Cloud. “I’d never been to a show where two things that were so familiar to me - Christmas songs and the stylings of particular rock bands - were blended to create something so incredible. I was sold after the third song.”
