Club booths at J-Day offer food and activities to enjoy


A long line snaked around Persian Culture Club’s booth on Friday as students excitedly ordered kabobs and rice. Although the day was hot as the sun rays beat down directly on the pavement, students wandered around outside, food and drinks in hand, as they went from booth to booth to enjoy food as well as participate in fun activities.

Held this year on May 31, J-Day not only let students celebrate the school year coming to a close, but also allowed clubs to fundraise through the booths they set up.

Students like junior Emma Gee, who helped man the food booths of Environmental Impact Club (EIC), Codi’s Hats and Chemical Society, found the day extremely useful for raising money for clubs next year.

“If you have people volunteer to bring in supplies, you’re making a 100 percent profit,” Gee said. “J-Day is helpful for next year because in clubs like Codi’s Hats, we need to buy supplies to decorate hats.”

Students were also able to join in on fun events, such as Sponge Wars, hosted by the TJ Model United Nations (MUN), and a pie throwing activity, hosted by Building a Better Community (BBC).

Overall, for both clubs and the students, J-Day was seen as a success.

“I thought that every club did a fantastic job managing their booths, and I was really impressed with the students’ effort,” sophomore Conrad Gehrki said.
