Fun Friday: The Wicked Jack ‘O Lantern of the West Stacks

It’s almost that time of year again: Falvey-ween!

And, at this time of year the Wicked Jack ‘O Lantern of the West Stacks likes to come out and renew his love of reading. This year, he picked up selections that would be sure to delight, surprise, and scare; including those by Stephen King, Samuel Delaney, and Mira Grant.

While it might appear from this time lapse that the rumors about hauntings in the West Stacks are true, these are actually energy efficient motion sensing lights that shut off when no one passes by. On second thought…I didn’t see anyone in the video that made them turn on, did you?

Kick back with Falvey’s summer word search!

By Daniella Snyder

Hey Wildcats, looking for something fun to do today and over your long Memorial Day Weekend?

You can get all the summer vibes from Falvey’s summer word search. I recommend you print it, take it outside, and find all the words while sitting underneath the sun while drinking a glass of lemonade. (Hammock optional, but highly recommended!)
