ciceCommunity Integration Through Cooperative Education (CICE) students helped St. Joseph’s at Fleming residents get in the Halloween spirit yesterday! For their CICE community project, the Fleming College students carved nine pumpkins for the St. Joseph’s at Fleming residents to help decorate for their Halloween party.
