Skull and Bones Helps Bring Halloween to St. Joseph’s

Special to The Minaret

Members of Skull and Bones and Alpha Epsilon Delta brought Halloween to St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital on Friday, Oct. 27.

Skull and Bones is UT’s Pre-Professional Health Society and Alpha Epsilon Delta is Pre-Professional Honors Society. A total of 13 members of both groups joined as one and represented UT and showed about fifteen patients how to have a great time.

The staff of the hospital provided a portion of the entrance to St. Joseph’s Hospital to host the event. The event lasted from 1:00 p.m. to 4 p.m. Members decorated the entrance with all of the Halloween favorites including spider webs, pumpkins and a large inflatable Halloween oriented arch.

Skull and Bones and AED set up several sections to entertain the children. The first station allowed the children to decorate their own cookies. The second section allowed the children to make their own mask. The third section was Halloween coloring. The fourth section had a BINGO game. The fifth section allowed the children to decorate pumpkins.

Other activities included, “trick or treating,” and two students even did some face painting.

Some of the patients could not leave their rooms. Not being a major problem, the group brought the celebration to the ones in need of a little fun.

“The event was a lot of fun. All of the children were so happy they didn’t want us to leave.” Aurore Scordino, president of both organizations said.

Scordino also wanted to thank everyone for having a good time and stressed they really made a difference.
