Autumn at Plasko’s Farm and Creamery

Almost 60 Yale Housing residents came out to challenge the 4.5-acre corn maze, take a hayride, try some fresh apple cider and doughnuts, and enjoy Plasko’s famous homemade cold treats including free soft serve ice cream. One ambitious team set a blazing 12 minutes record speed for the corn maze!

Sewing Machine

Did you know that there is a sewing machine at the swap room available for any resident to use?  Esplanade hosted a workshop to teach residents some basic machine sewing skills.

Egg Drop Challenge

How are your design skills?  Residents of all ages got a chance to stretch their creative muscles and see who’s egg could be dropped from the greatest height without being broken.
