Halloween at Pioneer Park
For over a decade many very dedicated people volunteered to host a Halloween Party at Pioneer Park. It has been a wonderful evening for children and for the hundreds of volunteers. Each year cookies, juice and thousands of pieces of candy are given to visitors young and old. Not only did this event offer a safe, centralized location for Trick or Treaterís, but it also has provided a venue to collect food for the local food shelf.
Due to itís popularity the event has grown over the years and now close to 1000 children and their families attend. The success of the event has not come easy. Many hours are spent each year, planning , coordinating, preparing and cleaning up. Over the last few years all of the work has fallen on the shoulders of a few individuals. In hopes of continuing the success of the event Pioneer Park is looking for individuals lead the project. Please contact Pioneer Park if you have any interest in assisting.
