While the weather whispered hints of snow, the Women of Nashotah House (WoNH) hosted this year’s Fall Fest for the children of seminary students, staff and faculty. Pumpkin carving and decorating, old-fashioned yard games — including bobbing for doughnuts and corn toss — as well as a sunset hayride were on the planned events page of the day. Yet this year included a few new additions — a scavenger hunt, a grilled bratwurst collection from around the world, courtesy Tom Heard ’15 and Jason Terhune ’15; and even a pet and child costume parade, hosted by Brittany Braddock.
The four-to-six-year-old parade participants all agreed they will bring drums and various noisemakers next year to liven things up a bit. Live and learn! Approximately 75 adults and children were in attendance, quickly popping open the umbrellas or dashing into various houses half-way through for an impromptu Wisconsin rain and sleet storm. But rain or no rain, the House persevered, enjoying a hayride organized by Mr. and Mrs. Chris Pokorny, ’15 and Mr. and Mrs. Christian Wood, ’16, where children and adults alike were surprised along the route by slightly spooky ‘Black Monks.’
