Today from 3-6 pm on the Quad is Project Pumpkin, one of the happiest days on campus:
Project Pumpkin is a signature student-led event that was started at Wake Forest in 1988 to bring together the campus and Winston-Salem communities. Each year around 500 children from local schools and after school agencies are invited to Hearn Plaza to participate in a fall Halloween themed festival. Students, faculty and staff collaborate to develop booths for trick-or-treating, carnival games, clowns, entertainment as well as educational activities.
I hope your Deacs are participating in Project Pumpkin – but if they aren’t, I hope they at least come up to the Quad and see all the fun. The forecast does not look great – pretty rainy. Not sure if the rain location is Wait Chapel, as it has been in the past, or Sutton Center. If we do get lucky and avoid rain, check out the Quad Cam between 3-6 pm and maybe you can catch a glimpse of trick-or-treaters.
We have had a change in the emergency notification system test; it will now be rescheduled to November. Details here.
