We’ve had an exciting week in the Resident Life Program with field trips, rock climbing at Camp Kieve, a campus tour at the University of Maine, and all of our students volunteered at the Pumpkinfest Kidzone. Pumpkinfest is an annual celebration that brings thousands of visitors to our community to view pumpkin decorations, a parade, pie eating contests, boat races and much more. LA’s Resident Life Students volunteer at the free Pumpkinfest Kidzone each year assisting children with fun pumpkin-themed games and activities throughout the holiday weekend.
