Storm Doesn’t Stop Students and Staff from Partying

Despite stormy weather, the Andrews Academy SA fall party carried on into the night. On October 30, students and faculty all met at Beaver Point for the first fall party off of school grounds to engage in a night filled with good times with friends, delicious food and riotous activities lasting from 5:00-7:30. These activities included a three-legged race, hay rides, a hanging doughnut-eating competition, and a pie-throwing contest with SA president John Henri as a target.

“It wasn’t the first time I’ve had pies thrown at me, but it was still really fun,” he reflected.  After the games were finished, all lined up to retrieve hot-dogs to roast over a fire – an activity that was extinguished along with the fire when rain invaded the party. This forced students to race or get rides to The Grove Park, where hay-rides, food service, and group games continued. Aside from disappointment due to rain, it seemed the general student response to the fall party was mainly positive.

Freshman Jenna Mann said “The activities were fun, but everything went with the rain.”

“I liked that they moved it to a new location so it wasn’t at school,” stated sophomore Emily Sherman. “The best part was the hay rides and the SA did a great job.”

An improvement some Academy members mentioned for the fall party was to host it on a night other than Sunday to avoid conflict with school preparation.

All things considered, it seems agreed that the changes in this year’s fall party –  in both location and weather – made for an eventful party.
