Resident Housing Association hosts first Harvest Festival

Resident Housing Association provided food, activities, and photo opportunities for the WMU community

The Resident Housing Association hosted their first ever Harvest Festival this past weekend.

The festival was hosted in the activity room of Eldridge/Fox Hall after it was moved from the Goldsworth Valley Pond due to weather. Despite this change of venue, the event still had many games and activities for the community to interact with.

“We have a couple inflatables, insomnia cookies, WMU catering. Some of the leadership teams from campus set up booths, like make your own door decs, some stress balls, a photo booth,” said Justin Kleckner, the Director of Public Relations for RHA, discussing what the festival had to offer.

In addition, there was apple cider and donut holes, face painting, and even plinko. While the weather may have meant a change of venue, it didn’t discourage the event organizers.

“We did change locations, so we weren’t expecting a lot of people…[but] we’re pretty happy with the turnout,” said Kleckner, commenting on the lower turnout than was originally expected. Despite this, he is still optimistic about the festival going forward.

 “Hopefully there are more years to come of this,” said Kleckner.
