Trick-or-treat, Rock Creek!
On Oct. 29, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) had a Halloween Hayday event at Rock Creek after school.
“It was a community event for little kids, and it provided safe, alternative fun for the kids,” new Family and Consumer Science teacher Shelby Muha said.
About 35 kids attended the event and enjoyed the activities that FCCLA organized.
“We had the pumpkin decoration, silent auction, bean bag toss, face painting, pumpkin stem toss, pumpkin bowling, cookie decoration, trick-or-treat and sensory table,” Muha said.
While the children had fun with the events, FCCLA members ran the activities.
“I was in charge of games,” freshman Miranda Warnow said. “I did the Halloween toss and the spider/pumpkin toss.”
Senior Jojo Harshbarger also helped with the event.
“I was in charge of the sensory table, so I’d say that the sensory table was a lot of fun,” Harshbarger said, adding that there were no difficulties at the Hayday event. “It was well planned out.”
Not only were the children able to play the games, but they were able to wear their costumes.
“It was really fun; it was cool to see kids in costumes,” Harshbarger said.
With this year’s turnout, people are questioning if there should be another one.
“Yes, because we raised a lot of money, and it was very fun for the children,” Warnow said.
