Washington, CT - Bewitched beauties, diabolical doctors, and creepy creatures commanded a ghoulish evening at Glenholme’s Monster Mast. This annual Halloween-themed affair is a highly anticipated campus event with the preceding weeks filled with party preparations, designing costumes, and coordinating efforts. The colorful, creative costumes included several with the flare for the fantastic, made for some frightful fun for everyone.

The 2010 Monster Mash on September 28th delivered another exciting on-campus occasion. The dance was an entertaining escape from the rigors of regular activities. It allowed for the opportunity to appreciate different music and enjoy the company of costume-clad classmates and staff. Many memorable moments were made this year at the Monster Mash and we look forward to next year’s thrilling and chilling Halloween event.
