MCCC Wins Trophy for "Pot of Gold" Float
The MCCC Admissions Office staff and a group of enthusiastic students designed such a fantastic float for Trenton’s St. Patrick’s Day parade they won first prize!  The float featured a rainbow with pots of gold at both ends, and a patriotic salute to our military men and women.  Students and staff walked/rode in the parade, some dressed as leprechauns.  For photos click here .

Eggsactly Equinox
Pat Barchi wanted to prove that raw eggs really do stand up during the equinox.  So she and her staff in Purchasing borrowed an egg, painted a face on it, and there it sat, bolt upright, on top of the file cabinet.  The egg drew a steady stream of onlookers last Friday afternoon, just to see the phenomenon in person.  Photo .
