The Raider FCA gathered on Friday, December 14 for a holiday-themed event enjoyed by all! The event began with FCA President, Mady Neukam, reading the story of the true meaning of Christmas. Thereafter, Devin Murphy (FCA VP) and Sam Schroeder (FCA Treasurer) helped organize a festive team competition that provided entertainment for those left in the audience. With holiday music playing in the background and holiday treats to share, the room was filled with holiday cheer as we celebrated the excitement of this Christmas season.
