Fall Fun and Service
Carnivals, cards, and candy, oh my! SAL Chapters have taken advantage of the weather, the pumpkins, and the Halloween spirit to serve their communities and celebrate the season!
University of North Carolina Wilmington participated in their school’s Halloween Carnival where predominantly underprivileged children came to play games and collect candy. SAL Members set up a fun table where kids tried to knock down a pyramid of cups. The booth was so popular they had to make two candy runs! University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s SAL chapter took advantage of their monthly chapter meeting to make Halloween cards for the residents at a local assisted living center. The cards will be used to help the center decorate for their annual Halloween party. Rowan University participated in Haunted Student Center, a university-run program for kids to trick-or-treat at tables set up by the different clubs and organizations in the student center so they can have a friendly and safe trick-or-treating experience.
Haunted forests were a trendy pick for SAL members during October as well. Several Grand Valley State University SAL members were chosen to dress up and act in the Forest of Fear while other members assisted with parking and tickets. The money raised from the Forest of Fear event goes toward community events. James Madison University attended a similar event as a social called Fear Forest. Together they walked by the haunted houses and scary characters in the forest. JMU SAL members also attended a local farm where they participated in a corn maze, pig races, petting zoo, and picking pumpkins from a pumpkin patch. California State University Fresno also took advantage of the pumpkin patch to socialize. The members had such a good time, they all went to enjoy coffee together afterward.
These seasonal projects were a great way for members and officers to enjoy hanging out together and taking advantage of the beautiful weather!
