A Spooktacular event is slowly creeping its way towards the campus this month.  It is the LCCC Annual Harvest Festival, which is being organized by the Student Senate. The event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the College Center Commons. The event is free and open to the public.

Celebration for a good cause

“This year’s celebration will also be for a good cause; the event will help support LCCC’s Commodore Cupboard and the United Automobile Workers (UAW) Local 2000’s food drive,” Finance Secretary of the Student Senate Tim Hall said. Hall is also one of the lead organizers of the Harvest Festival. “The goal for this year is to help as many people as possible, that’s why we are asking for self-care products donations for the first time.” Anyone can help by donating any non-perishable items, canned foods and self-care products at the event. The food drive is extended until Nov. 18 for all donations. The Commodore Cupboard is located at BU 113 on campus, and the UAW Local 2000 is located at 3151 N. Abbe road in Sheffield.

Fun activities for children

There will also be a lot of fun activities at the festival, like, the game truck, caricature artists, a bouncy house, candy, face painting, and a kid’s costume contest with trophies and medals as prizes. All the money from this event will go to Student Life which will go towards a scholarship fund.

Volunteers wanted to help

The Student Senate is also seeking volunteers to help out at the event. They seeking people to help pass out candy and games, as well as seeking a photographer to document the event. Any interested inquiries can speak with the senate at their office at CC 203 by Oct. 18, by 5:00 p.m.
