Recap Homecoming 2013: The Block Party

Among the many festivities that occurred during homecoming weekend at Toccoa Falls College, a favorite for the alumni was The Block Party hosted by the Student Government Association. The event was pleasant, tastefully diverse, and family-oriented. There were bouncy houses, train rides, and many free sweat treats to fit any personal preference!

Many vendors, including alumni, set up their colorful booths and provided friendly conversation to those who passed by. TFC clubs that were present included the Student Missionary Fellowship, The Philosophy Club, Ratio Christi, and The Forrester Yearbook Staff. SMF representatives painted henna tattoos and doodles on cheerful children and raised financial awareness for their internships. SMF asks that we all send support through prayer and monetary donations to next summer’s interns. The Philosophy Club was a huge hit with their bacon brownies and challenging brain games. Ratio Christi made an appearance and asks that SGA and the student body support their desire to continue their movie series. The Forrester Yearbook Staff sat at a small table with last year’s yearbooks and tracked down some alumni to hand them a little piece of history. Yearbook Editor, Caroline Wilson, asks that if you know any alumni or if you are alumni, that you contact her as soon as possible to receive your yearbook. Her email address is carolinewilson@tfc.edu.

Other vendors that attended this event included artist, Amy Smith, that brought some merchandise from her business A Glimpse of Heaven. Amy Smith personalizes painted gifts, cards, and her paintings are absolutely beautiful, fitting for any dorm room! You can contact her at glimpse.heaven@yahoo.com. Talia Kohl also had a booth set up for her home business that includes a variety of services such as: photography, home catering, basic layout and designing, cake decorating, and wall painting. You can contact Talia Kohl for any of these services at 706-244-2533. Another booth that caught the eyes of many onlookers was of The Leon and Rachel Gathany Museum Foundation. This foundation was created to fund and build a museum for the history of Toccoa Falls College. This museum is to be used exclusively for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes that will embrace the heritage and beginnings of our wonderful school.

As always, SGA is to be thanked for their incredible and commendable work to make activities like the Block Party a part of student life.
