WMU’s Residence Housing Association is holding a Harvest Festival at the Goldsworth Valley pond from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Students are invited to partake in free food and festivities and take a break before finals roll around.
“We just want it to be a relaxing get-together,” said David Hoskins, president of the Residence Housing Association. “Before we know it, finals will be here so we wanted to throw a big celebration.”
Activities include pumpkin painting and, weather permitting, 3D rock climbing and bungee cord basketball. The Harvest Festival is free to attend but the Residence Housing Association is using it as a platform for donations for the Invisible Needs Project.
“If people are willing to bring canned goods or other non-perishable items that’d be great,” said Hoskins.
For those interested in volunteering to help with the Festival are free to show up ahead of time to set up or take down afterwards. No sign-up or registration is required to volunteer or attend the festival.
“We want the whole community to come, not just students,” said Hoskins. “We want people to know we are here for the residents.”
