a.k.a – The Ghost Festival
Can you figure out what this is?
When one does not know what it is, then it is something; but when one knows what it is, then it is nothing.

During this time, ghosts wander in search of food and entertainment. To keep misfortune and bad luck away, families often throw a large feast for the ghosts. They bring samples of food and write riddles …

Ni Hao!
Hand in Hand is back for another great year! Yesterday we had out first event for this school year, the Annual Pool Party. It was great to see everyone after a long, hot summer, especially how different and matured we looked when we first arrived to Haynes Landing Clubhouse. However, that maturity didn’t last once we got to the pool and let our inner-children out with splash fights, cannonball diving, and pigging out on chips and soda. We nonetheless had an amazing time catching up with everybody and seeing …
