Angelina College will kick off its fiftieth year celebration with a food truck fest and community involvement fair Aug. 30 from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. The event is sponsored by AC’s Student Life office and the Student Government Association. “We wanted to have an event that celebrates our fiftieth year and thanks the community for their decades of support,” said Jordan LaCaille, Student Life and Orientation coordinator. “Our goal is to host a family-friendly celebration that not only thanks everyone for their support, but also gives the community a chance to become more involved with local organizations.”
Food trucks expected to attend are Deez Wingz, Snowmies, Brendyn’s BBQ, Shali’s Indian Kitchen, Kona Ice, UR Chef, Taqueria Viejo, El Coco Loco, Say Cheese, and Lupita’s.
Community organizations planning to participate are the Family Crisis Center of East Texas, the Burke Center, Region 5 Prevention Resource Center, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Alzheimer’s Association, Angelina Child and Family Development Association, Harold’s House, The Coalition, Relay For Life, and Habitat for Humanity, The Angelina College Human Resources office will also have a table set up where community members can check out current AC job postings.
The food trucks will be parked in front of the administration building and other activities such as bounce houses, photo booth and DJ will be set up in front of the Student Center and behind the administration building.
Except for the cost of food, this is a free event and is open to the public.
