It was hard to tell what was more exciting to the kids attending the ACCESS after-school program at Montgomery Elementary School on the Friday before Halloween: the cookie decorating and pumpkin carving about to get underway or the the UC Davis fraternity brothers there to help out.

In any case, the scene was a joyful one in the Montgomery multipurpose room as the kids designed, cut, cleaned out and carved their pumpkins, aided by seven members of the Lambda Theta Phi fraternity.

Luis Sanchez, assistant director of ACCESS at Montgomery, is a junior at UC Davis as well as a Lambda member and had no trouble getting his fraternity brothers to come out to Montgomery for the afternoon.

“We do a lot of community service,” he said.

Friday was the first time for some of them carving pumpkins.

“You guys are teaching me,” UCD senior Marcelo Vargas told second-graders Jason Sisco and Kristian Puente as he helped them carve their designs.

Each child would head home at the end of the afternoon with a specially carved pumpkin — all of which had been donated by Ikeda, Safeway and the LaSalle Apartments complex.

“This is so great,” said ACCESS director Cheryl Sharp.
