When:November 30, 6 p.m.
Where:The journey begins in the main lounge of the PEG Building, 215 East Frederick St., Staunton.
People are Saying:“The celebration of Las Posadas is the perfect way for the Mary Baldwin University community to celebrate the winter holidays because it is an inclusive festivity. Everyone is welcome and students share with us ways of welcoming Christmas and other joyful holidays that are close to their hearts and part of their lives.”
