OHNY Halloween

As the fall season settles in, we at OHNY celebrated the harvest and the Halloween holiday by holding a pumpkin-carving contest this past weekend with our flatmates, anderson architects. The festivities began promptly at four o’clock, and the scooping and scraping and sculpting of gourds ensued.

The competition stoked not just our creativity, but our appetites as well. In addition to our scrumptious spread of cheeses, crackers, olives, and sweets, we were treated to pumpkin pie cocktails, courtesy of our departing volunteer coordinator, Andrew.
The only thing missing in all of this was a set of candles to illuminate the insides of our pumpkins! Improvising and enterprising as we are, we turned upside-down some desk lamps and stood back to admire our handiwork and to allow the impartial panel of judges to select the winner of the contest.
Although Team OHNY did not win, the party was still a great success.
Happy Halloween!
