Guests are instructed to pick up information and a free punch card at the Lewis Memorial Gazebo. The first 50 visitors to return a completed punch card to the Legacy Shop in the Rotunda of the former Hotel Ponce de Leon receive a swag bag of 50th Anniversary Flagler goodies. All participants will receive 20% off one item.

The purpose of the open house is to see the life inside the historic landmark buildings, with which most are familiar, according to Margo Thomas, director of alumni relations. “We are hoping that by visiting our other buildings, people will come away with an understanding and enthusiasm for the learning experiences our students have every day here on campus,” she said.

This event is the fourth in a string of others scheduled to celebrate with the community the college’s 50th anniversary. Other events include the special fall theatre arts musical production of “All Shook Up” from Nov. 7 – 10 starring Broadway actor Justin Matthew Sargent, and a children’s book reading by author Harvey E. Oyer III on Dec. 1.
