Hello Alums!

EDM is recovering from an exciting and busy month of October! Right
after reading days, we participated in Greek Day of Service. We had
some girls go out and do campus clean up and another group headed to
the Knox Country Head Start Center. That same weekend, EDM co-hosted a
lounge party with the Delts. The theme was America. Overall, it went
really well and we're proud of how we pulled the party together. It
was complete with awesome red, white, and blue decorations and some
excellent DJing courtesy of Emily Rapp. To finish off the weekend, on
Sunday we all headed to Mt. Vernon for the CROP walk. It was a
beautiful day, and everyone had fun walking for a good cause!

This past weekend we hosted our annual Halloween Party, which this
year was called the "Halloween Spooktacular." We threw the party in
the Horne Gallery and it worked out beautifully. The decorations were
fabulous and the party went off almost without a hitch. The first hour
we had Halloween-themed activities such as bobbing for apples, cookie
decorating, and eat the doughnut off the string (much harder than it
looks)! The next hour, we had Professor Shutt come in and share
several of his spookiest Kenyon ghost stories. Finally, Motown came
for the last hour and performed for our guests. We had great turnout,
and the Horne was an ideal space for what we wanted to do. Giveaways
included t-shirts and pumpkin mugs! We also participated in the Greek
Fall Festival that weekend, which was geared toward the children in
the Gambier community. EDM's booth was face painting!

In between our bigger events, EDM also found time for the Senior
Scavenger hunt! We also ordered pizzas to the division lounges last
week and decorated t-shirts with iron-on letters, puff paint, and
daisies. Over Parents' weekend, we had a meet and greet/get together
in Crozier complete with dessert and embarrassing childhood stories.

As for November, we have PNO planned for this Friday and a community
service trip to a Retirement Center to attend their "Fall Ball." Our
semiformal will be on December 4th this year!
