Fall Pumpkin Party, THIS Saturday October 16
You’re invited to a party this Saturday, October 16th, from 3pm-7pm at the home of Lindsey Hershner. We will participate in Pumpkin Carving, a U.S. Fall tradition. There will also be seasonal snacks served at the party. If you would like to carve your own pumpkin to take home with you please bring $5 to cover the cost of the pumpkin and send an email to Lindsey at email@example.com saying that you would like one, so that we can get an idea of how many pumpkins to purchase. Pumpkins and supplies for carving them will be at the house on Saturday. If you would not like to carve a pumpkin, but would prefer to come for the snacks and to visit with friends that is fine as well!
Lindsey’s address is 802 Old Pittsboro Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27516. Please be advised this is a little misleading, the house is actually located on Valentine Lane. If you are coming from campus, follow Columbia Street south past the School of Public Health and the UNC hospitals. You will come to Valentine Lane on your right. Immediately after this is Old Pittsboro Road. You want to turn right onto Valentine Lane. Lindsey’s house is the first on the right. You will find everyone in the backyard on the patio. There is a very close bus stop at the intersection of Columbia Street and Mason Farm Road. This stop is serviced by the JN bus on the weekends. You may want to walk from campus or take the bus to get there because there is a football game that day, so there will likely be little parking available nearby. If you have any problems finding the house you may call Lindsey at 804-306-2106.
October 30 Hiking Trip
We’ve rescheduled our biking trip to a one-day hiking trip at Hanging Rock, NC on Saturday October 30. We will meet at 8:30am at the parking lot in between the Global Fedex Center and the School of Pharmacy, and then will drive the two hours to Hanging Rock. We’ll spend the day hiking outside, enjoying the beautiful views of mountains and the incredible colors of all the changing leaves. The cost of the trip is $25 to cover transportation, and you will also need to bring a lunch to eat at Hanging Rock as well as money for a quick dinner on the way back. We will be back by 8:30pm Saturday evening. If you would like to come, please email Kate Hagborg at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot. We hope you will join us!
