Trick or Treat Extravaganza scheduled for Oct. 30

The 10th annual Trick or Treat Extravaganza will be held from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 30 in the Shoemaker Center gym at Ohio University-Chillicothe.

Organized by OU-C’s Human Services Association student club, it provides a safe place for children and families to attend. The event includes treat tables, five bounces houses, arts & crafts, face painting, and games. Pizza and drinks will be available for purchase. Many organizations, businesses, social service agencies, other student clubs, and public officials are participating in various ways. Admission will be free.

Those attending are asked to bring a donation of gently used or new coats, jeans or other clothing for the children’s clothing bank and/or non-perishable food items. The food will be donated to the Good Samaritan Network food bank.

Major co- sponsors of the event this year are Ross County Water Company, Nourse Family Dealership, Glatfelter, United Healthcare, and Molina Healthcare. The Human Services Technology students are assisting by recruiting treat table sponsors and participants. Organizations, businesses, agencies, and interested persons are needed to sponsor treat tables and/or store purchased candy, game prizes, activities and arts and craft supplies.

The treat table sponsors are to bring sealed bags of store purchased candy and arrive at the Shoemaker gym by 5 p.m. the day of the event.  Further information about the event can be obtained by contacting Barbara Mahaffey, Human Services Technology Program Coordinator at (740) 774-7287 or by email at mahaffey@ohio.edu.
