Halloween Event a Huge Success!

Our Halloween Event on Saturday October 30th attracted over 100 kids and their families and was the most elaborate event of it's kind that we've ever put on. The Northern end of our park was decorated with festive balloons, and all sorts of creepy Halloween props such as bats, "tombstones", and elegantly painted pumpkins. The proceedings were watched over by a giant inflated spider! The kids enjoyed treats, prizes, games, contests and face painting and seemed happily engaged in activities for hours. We've put up a gallery of photos from the event on our Web site for all to enjoy. The event was free for all participants and like all of our events was underwritten by contributions to our organization. Help us continue to support events like this by making an online charitable contribution now!

A big thank you goes out to all the volunteers who helped make this event so special. We couldn't have done it without you!
