Messina Helps First-Year’s Celebrate Halloween with Pumpkin Decorating

Trick or Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat! We hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween.

To help first-year’s get in the holiday spirit, Messina set-up at the picnic tables on Hillside for some fun pumpkin decorating that was complimented with Halloween Candy. The first-years got really creative with their pumpkin designs by wrapping their stems with strings, using stickers to spell out festive words, gluing on skittles to add some color, bedazzling the pumpkins with gems, and using googly eyes to create faces. Check out the first years hard at work below and see some of the mini pumpkins that they decorated!
