November 27, 1995: GMCC now has its own Staff Lounge

Every Friday the GRIFFINS play, the GRIFFINS LAIR is open to all GMCC staff and faculty. The Lair is located in Building 8, above the gym in Room 218. Students are not allowed, the beverages are cheap, and you can eat all you like for only $5. You can even call ahead to reserve a table (Ken at 5291). The Lair opens at 3:00 p.m. This is YOUR lounge folks! The next date is Friday, December 1, when the volleyball teams will take on Keyano College. After the Christmas break, the Lair will open every Friday from January 12 through February 23. (Sources: MacEwan Today, November 27, 1995; logo, 1997-1998 yearbook).
