Wondering what happens to all those leftover jack-o-lanterns? Phi Theta Kappa’s GRCC chapter will be hosting a pumpkin smashing event this Tuesday, Nov. 2 from 11 a.m. to 1p.m.
Students, staff and faculty are invited to gather at the Juan R Olivarez Plaza, located between the Bostwick parking ramp and the Raleigh J. Finkelstein Hall, for some much-needed Halloween themed stress relief.
“Given how much stress we have all been under over the last year, we thought this would be a fun way to release some,” said PTK Faculty Advisor Lynnae Selberg. She also made sure to credit student leaders, Aya Ghlaim and Jessica Hay, with the idea.
PTK has partnered with Visser Farms in Zeeland to provide pumpkins and other small smashable items. There will also be a target style game with small stress relief themed prizes including fidget spinners, stress balls and candy. Light refreshments such as donuts, cider and hot cocoa also will be provided.
For anyone interested in donating or getting rid of their own porch pumpkins, there will be a large blue tarp at the plaza accompanied by a sign at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning.
