Clarkson B-school Students Organize "winter Wonderland Ball" For Potsdam's Senior Citizens Dec. 5

Some Clarkson University entrepreneurship students have put together a special holiday event for the area’s senior citizens. The students are inviting seniors from throughout the North Country to the “Winter Wonderland Ball” on Sunday, December 5, from 2-5 p.m. in the Barben Rooms of Clarkson University’s Cheel Campus Center.

The afternoon’s entertainment highlight is the Big Band sounds of Dave MacMillan and the Villagers. Refreshments will be served and those attending can have their photograph taken. Admission is free.

The dance was the idea of students in the “Entrepreneurship Management and Organization” class, according to one of its students, Kathryn E. Campbell of Brownville, N.Y.

Each year, students in the entrepreneurship class form a company and sell a product, using the profits for a community service activity. This semester the students sold 300 wool knit Clarkson caps in the school’s colors.

The students then entertained ideas on how to put the money to good use. The dance for senior citizens stood out from the rest. “I thought it was a cute idea when I first heard it,” said Campbell. “It’s a great way to bring the community together… It’s going to be a fun time for everyone.”
