Reverse Trick-Or-Treat!

November 10th, 2013 · Comments Off on Reverse Trick-Or-Treat!

Tufts BMES took Sci-tech by surprise on Halloween this year by reverse-trick-or-treating–that’s when people go around giving out candy instead of going around asking others for it. We were able to spread joy and Halloween spirit through some candies and chocolates. It was our way of saying thank you for all of your support for BMES events. Needless to say, it was a very “sweet” experience :) Thanks always, Tufts!!
