EMCC Celebrates Harvest Days 

Students at Eastern Maine Community College in Bangor got to take a break from classes today and have a little fun.Meghan Hayward takes us to the festivities.”Every year, the school gives us the opportunity to interact with faculty and staff as well as community and this is just one of the days.”Students got to ditch classes and celebrate harvest days.They had plenty of activities to take part in.From carving pumpkins to participating in a bungee run.They even got to smash an old car.But it wasn’t all about the games.”We made a huge community service component this morning. We did a walk-a-thon sponsored by the Student Senate where they pledge 50 cents for every lap around our walking track.”Alexandria Olsson is Student Senate President.She says a day like this brings the campus together.”It seems like our college, we have the welding kids, automation kids and then the construction people and liberal studies. Everyone kind of does their own thing. So days like this is just great. Everyone can have a day off from classes and just relax.”A popular spot at Harvest Days, the dunk tank.”They’re getting a chance to dunk their resident assistants and their resident directors for charity.”A day of fun, that Olsson says took a lot to put together.But it was well worth it.
