Community children invited to annual safe harvest

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

FREDERICK, Md.—An annual fall celebration for children in the Frederick and surrounding communities is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 27 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Hood College.

“Safe Harvest,” sponsored by the Hood College Chapter of Mortar Board, provides children ages 12 and under the opportunity to enjoy a safe and fun-filled evening of games, arts and crafts and trick or treating on Hood’s campus. Parents or guardians are required to accompany their children throughout the evening.

This year’s festivities will begin at 5 p.m. in the Whitaker Campus Center Commons with games and activities. The children—escorted by Mortar Board members—will have the opportunity to trick or treat throughout Hood’s five residence halls beginning at 6 p.m. The last group will depart from the campus center at 7:30 p.m.

In conjunction with Safe Harvest, Mortar Board will sponsor a fund-raising drive to benefit UNICEF and Mortar Board’s virtual book drive. Mortar Board is a National Senior Honor Society promoting service, leadership and scholarship among college seniors nationwide.
