On Tuesday, October 31, 2017 M2S hosted a pumpkin carving party for seafarers and everyone. Twenty-five people enjoyed an evening of carving, cookie decorating and free food. Four seafarers from the Philippines carved pumpkins for the first time in their lives and did a marvelous job. One Brit carved the tiniest pumpkin ever and you can see all the proof on our Facebook page. Thanks to everyone who came out.
