Featured Perch Project
On November 30, Maia chapter at the University of New Mexico lit up campus with over 14,000 luminaria in their stunning event called Hanging of the Greens. The immensely popular happening has become not only one of the oldest UNM traditions, but also a much-anticipated celebration for families from all over Albuquerque. Singing carols and sipping hot chocolate, young and old, students and faculty, alumni and local residents, wend their way through a campus made magical by the warmly glowing lanterns lighting the way. The procession traditionally ends at the on-campus home of the UNM president where a ceremonial wreath is presented to ring in the season. Chapter President Angelica Gurule was elated to present the wreath to Dr. Garnett Stokes, the 23
—and the first woman--president of the institution. What a great perch project and way to bring all people from all over campus and community together regardless of creed, religion, or beliefs. Great job, Maia chapter!
