More than 80 children, parents and adults attended the Fall Festival and Halloween Party on the evening of Nov. 1 at the J.C. Price American Legion Post 107. The program was sponsored jointly by Post Legionnaires and Auxiliary, Unit 107.
Some children were dressed in Halloween costumes, masks and /or painted faces. The Post was decorated inside and out for Halloween with haystacks and other items for a Fall Festival atmosphere. Paint stations and game stations were set up with chess, checkers and other games including indoor and outdoor toss games.
The children were entertained by Magician “Buddy” who surprised the children with disappearing and other magic tricks. He used puppets and familiar items to perform his magic. He also included the children as his assistant in performing many feats. The children laughed and tried to replicate his tricks under his supervision.
The children danced to music provided by DJ “Neak.” She told Halloween jokes; danced with the children and shared information about staying in school and reading books. Children won age appropriate prizes, and they danced to line dances and familiar children’s songs.
Participants enjoyed hot dogs with all the trimmings, drinks, cookies and cakes. Mr. Daniels took pictures of the Halloween activities and children who posed for the camera.
As they left, children were given school supplies, candy and fruit bags.
Legionnaires present: Commander Mae Carroll, Leonard Hall, and Clarence Akins who won the 2019-2020 Rowan County Veteran of the Year. Auxiliary Members present: President A.J. Alexander, Kathy Scott, Renita Craig, Brenda Avery and L.A. Alexander.
