Nearly 115 Colonel Crawford area children, accompanied by many family members, were treated to a Halloween Party at the High School on Oct. 29. Hosts for the evening were the Colonel Crawford Lions and the C.C. Leos. Special help with the night’s activities was given by members of the Jefferson Township Fire Department and their Explorers.
The costumed children were divided into eight groups ranging from infants through Grade 5. Winners were selected from each group in the following categories: funniest, scariest, cutest, most original, and best costume. The winners of each category received a plaque. All participants received a decorated ribbon.
