Hey Pre-Vetters! Halloween is just around the corner, as are most of our upcoming events! Read on to learn how you can get involved with Pre-Vet Club during the fall season:
Halloween Havoc This is an exciting carnival-style fall event organized by the Cattlemen’s Club. It is open to the general public and will be on Tues., Oct. 28 from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Arena on South Milledge. Our club will have a booth, so you are welcome to join us there and help hand out candy prizes. Thanks to all of the members who brought in candy for this event on Monday!
Terrapin Glass Design Congratulations to Bridget Savitske, the winner of our glass design contest!

We appreciate all of the time and talent that went into the other entries we received as well; this was a hard decision to make.
