We wanted to take a moment to highlight the successful events the CVC has had in October:

1. On Saturday, Hardy Girls Healthy Women (HGHW) had a Freaky 5K walk/run.  The turnout was tremendous and the costumes were amazing. Congratulations to HGHW for raising $15,000 off the event!  Although there are countless people to thank, we would like to give a special shout out to….

  • HGHW Program Leaders (Laura, Brittney, Jamie) and their volunteers for tabling and helping with the event
  • The Women’s Indoor Track Team for helping set up
  • The Alpine Ski Team for lining the course
  • Men’s Hockey and Women’s Lacrosse Teams for running
  • ALL the runners and walkers

Be sure to also check on the article in the Morning Sentinel:


2. On Sunday from 1-4, Pulver was full of little kids running around and having a great time at the annual Halloween Extravaganza.  In addition to some incredible costumes, there was face painting in the Pugh Center, cookie decorating in LoPo, a haunted house in Page, and games and more in the Pulver Pavillion Area.
*Thank you to everyone who made these events so successful!

3. Evening sandwich had a successful Food Day raffle on Friday.
4. The Helping Hands Food Drive started collecting donations on Friday at Food Day.  In partnership with Sodexo and Colby-Waterville Alliance, the CVC is helping table to collect money and cans for the annual Helping Hands Food Drive. The donations will be going to food pantries in mid-Maine. 
5. On Saturday, the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter had its “fall festival,” which involved making delicately decorated cupcakes.  Thank you to the five volunteers: the four members of the Rotaract Club led by Karen Chen and Courtney Klein. 

Thank you to all of our community partners and wonderful volunteers!
