Letter: Community made Halloween fun possible

To the editor:

For many years the city of Williams Recreation Department has produced activities including the Halloween festivities at the Youth Recreation Center and the Skate Park. As the funding has tightened for the department through the recent economic slowdown, the community has stepped forward and provided not only the means to produce the Halloween event but have expanded on it every year.

The haunted house was truly inspired and beyond scary this year. This haunted house took many donated hours of time by Steve Schober, Lela Olsen, Dave and Connie Sanchez, Lonnie the painter, Anna Dick, Brenda Hilliard and too many more to list here.

The kids zone at the Halloween fair was produced by Jaime Donovan, Maggie Jenson, Gracie Jansma, Kascyanna Lowe, Daeja Lomas and several other fifth grade youth and was a great addition to the crafts, face painting, balloons and refreshments offered by the City Recreation Department.

This year the list of companies, organizations, private individuals and school groups that helped, proved one more time what a wonderful and generous community Williams is. The event collected $500 and approximately 250 cans of food to jumpstart the Williams Rotary Club's First Annual Food Drive for the Williams Food Bank. The money has been donated to the Williams Elementary School Art Program and the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) group.
