On October 25th, Cook Chapter participated in the annual Rutgers’ Monster Mash. Monster Mash is an event held by Rutgers University that serves as an alternative trick-or-treating activity for the children of New Brunswick. The goal of this program is to provide a safe venue where kids can come dressed up and participate in games and get candy. Clubs and organizations at Rutgers are encouraged to come up with a game or some other type of presentation that the kids can interact with. Our table had two different purposes. First, we came up with a corn-hole type of game and the kids had to throw a ball into a basket. If the ball stayed in the basket they got a candy prize. They actually still got the prize even if they missed, because how can you say no to a little kid dressed up in cute costumes? The second part of our table was dedicated as a coloring station. We laid out spooky coloring book pages and had the kids color as many as they wanted.

This event benefits the local children who may not live in the best of areas because it provides them with a safe alternative to trick or treating in the neighborhood. Our chapter benefited because we were able to have a great time interacting with the kids and it was fulfilling because we were able to provide a safe and fun experience for them. We participated because we think it is a great event and it is becoming quite the tradition in our chapter to do so. We asked members to help out with the game and they signed up to work the table in shifts. We divided the night into hourly timeslots, but most members ended up staying the whole time!
