Kids’ Halloween Party was a hit
The Kids’ Halloween party took place at the Clinton Memorial Hall on Tuesday, October 31 and was a wonderful evening full of creative costumes and many laughs. The event was sponsored by the Clinton Recreation Commission and the Mill Girl Follies, and was well attended by children and parents from throughout the community.
Kids took part in a spooky scavenger hunt, pumpkin decorating, dancing, and more; many even had washable tattoos applied, and got the chance to have their fortune read in the mysterious “Pumpkin Tent”. A huge thank you must again be extended to those who helped make the evening such a success.
