Fall Fest Wednesday at Central Campus

Despite the searing heat and desert like conditions of the past few months, believe it or not – fall is approaching. A sure sign should be the pumpkins and scarecrows loitering on every corner, and houses decked with fluffy white spider webs.

Despite temperatures happily hovering in the 70’s, water restrictions and brown lawns looking like they may have settled in somewhat sooner than Al Gore predicted, CPCC is following a fall calendar and as such – it’s time for Fall Fest.
Wednesday, October 24, 10 am – 2 pm on the Quad to be precise.

Better news yet, with no rain predicted in the forecast as far as the eye can see, chances are good that students, faculty and passers-by will be able to enjoy the outdoors and wander between the tents, soaking up good food, great music and plenty of information.

Fall Fest is mainly about fun and connecting students in a relaxed atmosphere.
It is an opportunity for the clubs and college organizations to get information out to the students. There will be about 20 different organizations there to hand out information, answer questions and explain their purpose.

Fall Fest serves as a fundraiser for many of the clubs with specific goals.
The Service learning Club is raising money to fund their Alternative Spring Break Trip. They’re aiming for a Habitat for Humanity project to build a house in Sumter, SC.

For those with an ear to the dry ground – music will be provided by Robin Rogers and Her Hot Band, 2003 winner of the Charlotte Blues Society’s Blue Challenge. Her husband Tony accompanies her on his Blues guitar, and the duo are apparently a formidable pair.

Who could resist? It’s going to be a great day. Great music to listen to, great food to buy, great information on hand, a great show of support for so many different groups and more than likely – great weather.
Can you think of a good reason not to join us?
