Frederick Community College is inviting the public to celebrate its 60th anniversary at the second annual FCC Fest on Saturday, October 7, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The free event, held on the main campus, is a way for the College to thank and celebrate the Frederick community and showcase FCC.
 
“For 60 years, FCC has provided affordable, accessible public higher education,” said President Elizabeth Burmaster. “We look forward to celebrating our anniversary with the Frederick County community.”
