Halloween – Bluffton style

This morning I noticed a jack-o-lantern, complete with a tealight, on the front porch steps at the PR house. First thoughts - “That’s odd. Where did that came from?” As my to-do-list beckoned I didn’t think much more about it until later in the day.

In a stroll across campus, there were jack-o-lanterns everywhere: in the Riley Court courtyard, on Beeshy bridge, by Marbeck. Ah, last night was Trick-or-Treat. Somebody – or some group of somebodies – did a lot of work to decorate the campus appropriately. Thank you!

A relatively new tradition on campus is to open the residence halls to area children on the village Trick-or-Treat night, which happened to be last night. I have it on good authority that Trick-or-Treating in the halls – or at least in Hirschy – was a success.

Random notice:
We’re excited to announce that United States Congressman Jim Jordan representing the 4th District, Ohio, will be holding a Town Hall meeting Nov. 11 on Bluffton’s campus. Doors to Founders Hall will open at 6:30 p.m. with the event scheduled for 7-8:30 p.m.

This event is an opportunity for residents of the 4th district, especially those in Allen and Hancock Counties, to ask questions of Congressman Jordan. Other Town Hall events have occurred in the district this year, but none in this part of the region.
