A picture I took around town that reminded me of fall.

Thursday I did get a chance, after my homework was done, to attend the
women's soccer game versus the Waynesburg Yellow Jackets. Unfortunately,
The Lady Quakers lost! They are now 3-5-2. Along with sporting events
there are lots of other things to do around in and around Wilmington
this time of year. For instance, in the actual town of Wilmington, Ohio
in Clinton County, There is the Wilmington Haunted Hollow Ride which is
held every fall in the fields. The ride costs from ten dollars to thirty
dollars depending on what you choose. There is also a Slaughter hotel
and a Nightmare Penitentiary as well if you are interested in haunted,
scary events. For a non-scary fall activity there is the Fall Harvest
Bash and the Great Pumpkin Patch! There are over 20 acres of pumpkins to
pick from; you can enjoy a hay ride and fun games like a pumpkin
throwing contest. I will be going to the Grandpa's Pottery open house.
It's located in town at Grandpa's Pottery and it's a great time to get
some bargains! Most of the pottery is on clearance and there will be
demonstrations along with refreshments! These all happen on different
days so you don't have to choose any fun events over another. There are
more activities if you're interested just look up October events in
Clinton County, buy local first. This October and Halloween seem to look
like it will be a lot of fun this year! I still don't know what I am
going to dress up as for Halloween. Typically one of our frat houses on
campus throws a Halloween bash and everyone comes out and dresses up for
some fun!
Until next time keep updated with your Wilmington College student
