Hallowe’en social promises phant-astic fun

UWindsor staff and faculty are invited to eat, drink and be scary at the annual Faculty and Staff Hallowe’en Social. The lunchtime party, sponsored by the president’s office, runs from noon to 1:15 p.m on Wednesday, October 31, in Vanier Hall's Winclare A.

This year’s spine-tingling event promises prizes for best individual and group costumes in addition to door prizes, says organizer Mary-Ann Rennie.

“It’s a great way for people to get away from their desks for an hour of fun,” Rennie says. “They get to have a wonderful time together and show off their creativity.”

The highlight of the event is the creativity of the costumes, says Carolin Lekic. Lekic, who is the history department secretary, dressed up as Cruella de Ville last year and looks forward to seeing the other costumes.

“Wearing a costume is fun, and it brings out the kid in me,” Lekic says. “It’s even more exciting since this is something you wouldn’t do on a normal day.”
