Each Fall the University of Southern Maine Huskies' Department of Athletics and its student-athletes host its annual Community Halloween Party for children in grade five and under. This annual event is always a big hit with community members and is free of charge. Those in attendance are able to enjoy music, dancing, some tricks and treats (of course), face-painting, games, prizes and more.
This annual event is supported in part by the Town of Gorham and the Gorham Recreation Department. It is coordinated and organized by the USM Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and student-athletes representing all 22 of the University of Southern Maine's varsity intercollegiate teams have taken part in the event.
