Candle light flickered as we gathered round the art table to eat and talk. Students began talking about what scared them and what Halloween movies they found the spookiest. The talk grew into an old fashioned, low-tech ghost story telling session. It was as if we were gathered around a campfire somewhere. Several stories made some anxious and we admitted that we felt a few goosebumps raised on the backs of our arms.
The party was a great excuse to get to know each other better as a group and to just enjoy each others company. Sometimes, especially in a group that is just for fun, this is more important than anything else. I enjoyed hearing the stories and contributing a few of my own. It's amazing what a few candles and some scary music can generate. Hope you all had a Happy Halloween. Now Art Club is on to their next service project, but the party was fun!
