Wednesday, May 18, 2022, the Main Campus of Monroe County Community College will be busy with a variety of free events that are open to the public with community involvement encouraged.
At 4:30 p.m. MCCC is sponsoring the Monroe Floral City Model A Club -- Model A Display. Club members will display their cars in the parking lot in front of the Career Technical Center (T Building). A brief presentation and remarks will be made in Room T 157 at 5 p.m.. The event is designed in part to encourage children and young adult interest in vintage automobiles and engineering.
At 11 a.m., Michele Toll, professor of English at MCCC, will present "Yiddish Words and Phrases in American Culture," as part of MCCC's May Diversity Month series of events. Many Yiddish words and expressions have become part of mainstream American English for Jewish people living in the United States and many other Americans too, even those there are only about one-quarter million Yiddish speakers in the country, primarily Hasidic Jews who live predominantly on the East Coast. Toll will highlight some of the most popular of these terms (think: glitch, shlep, shvitz) and help participants with pronunciations, definitions, connotations and use in American English.
