Annual Fall Bonfires

Each fall, PWR gather for our annual bonfire at Professor Taylor’s house. Favorite activities include “Murder in the Dark,” a murder mystery game, as well as, enjoying snacks, playing board games, and playing Mafia.

Fall 2018

We had a record turnout for the Fall 2018 bonfire at Professor Taylor’s house. Her pets received an extra dose of love, and our mafia game reached a new level of intensity with two teams of mafia working against each other. And yes, we did spend some time outside by the bonfire!
