ATHOL - More than 30 children attended the annual Halloween party on October 24 sponsored by the Thurman Youth Commission and held at the town hall.
Prizes were awarded for Best Costume. The two top winners were a bumble-bee/butterfly getup and a Scarlet O'Hara disguise. But so many others were indeed humorous, scary, and or pretty. It was difficult to choose only two. Therefore, many other prizes were given and each child took home a goodie bag.
Children played games, and assembled crafts including teddy bear magnets. An indoor parade was held, and cookies, cupcakes, and punch were served.
The event's organizers express thanks to Bob, Martha, Shirley, Susan, Lisa, Ted, Bruce, Nancy, Don, Cheryl, Kylelee, Jessica, Amanda, Norma, and everyone else who helped to make this a special day for the kids.
