UMC celebrates Maroon & Gold Fridays
February 7, 2006

The University of Minnesota, Crookston (UMC) announced the winner of the fifth Maroon & Gold Fridays’ office party for January. The winner of a gift certificate from UMC is Willow & Ivy.

“It’s not too late to become part of Maroon & Gold Fridays. You can wear your own UMC apparel or you can purchase a gold polo or maroon t-shirt from Hugo’s in Crookston,” shared Kylene Odegaard and Kari Vallager, both UMC Alumni Association Board members. Maroon & Gold Fridays encourages both the UMC community and surrounding communities to wear the school colors to show pride and spirit. Each month one winner receives an office party for their participation in the event.

The Maroon & Gold Friday proclamation was made by Crookston’s mayor, Don Osborne, on September 7, 2005 and will last throughout the centennial year celebration. To learn more about Maroon & Gold Fridays and how you can participate, please visit
