Forever Red and Valley Nights team up for friendship

On Thursday, Oct. 21, Forever Red hosted its Thankful Thursday event for the month of October. The event took place in the TSAR.

Thankful Thursday is hosted by Forever Red all throughout the year. This month, Forever Red partnered with Valley Nights for the October Friendship Thankful Thursday.

“Thankful Thursday is a yearround event in which each month we dedicate our time to being thankful for a specific topic,” Macy Docken, pre-nursing junior and vice president of Enhance for Forever Red said. “During that month, we (host) an event to help individuals on campus highlight what they are thankful for (while having) a good time.”

A variety of activities were presented at the October Thankful Thursday event for students to enjoy, including snacks, a photo booth, friendship bracelets, and the movie “Luca.”

“Preparing for this event, we had multiple meetings with Valley Nights, in which we discussed how to execute the event,” Docken said. “There was a lot of planning that went into this event as there are very many aspects that students could participate in, such as the photo booth, making friendship bracelets, watching the movie, eating snacks, etc.”

With the monthly Thankful Thursdays, Forever Red hopes to encourage the SVSU community to slow down and take a moment to reflect on things they are thankful for.

“Thankful Thursdays (are) all about highlighting all the things in life to be thankful for,” Docken said. “Sometimes, as our life gets very busy, we tend to not realize all the amazing things that we have. Therefore, this event aims to let the SVSU community appreciate the little things.”

The entire SVSU community is invited to participate in Thankful Thursdays.

“Anyone in the SVSU community was allowed to attend the event,” Docken said. “All (are) welcome as we are just trying to show what we are thankful for.”
