The weekend may serve as a time of rest for some of us at Kellogg Community College, but for others it’s game time, literally and figuratively. Here are some events happening this weekend related to KCC.

  • The Kellogg Community College Bruin-Bots robotics competition team for youth that’s been practicing for the past month at KCC’s Regional Manufacturing Technology Center in Battle Creek will participate in a Qualifying Tournament beginning at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at Bedford High School, 8285 Jackman Road, in Temperance, just north of Toledo, Ohio. If the team does well they’ll go on to compete in the Championship Tournament scheduled for Dec. 15 in Holland. Click here for more information about Bruin-Bots from a post on this blog.
  • The Kellogg Community College women’s basketball team plays their first home game of the season beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, against Olivet College at the Miller Gym on KCC’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek. The team is coming off a win against Schoolcraft College on Wednesday that brought their record for the season to an even 2-2, one win of which was against Olivet College’s JV team earlier this month.

  • Kellogg Community College’s Branch County Community Chorus will perform as a guest ensemble with the Monroe Symphony and Community Chorus during their production of the Christmas portion of Handel’s “Messiah” scheduled for 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2, at IHM Motherhouse Cathedral, 610 W. Elm Ave., in Monroe. For ticket information, call 734-241-3660.
