VFW names event winners

The annual children’s Halloween party was held on Oct. 30, sponsored by our VFW Auxiliary 2599. Approximately 46 children attended this year and a good time was had by everyone.

The VFW had many things for the children to do, such as pumpkin printing, costume judging, games, cakewalk and a lunch. Each child received a bag of candy as they came in the door. The most popular game was the cakewalk. Each child got to go home with a cake.

Winners for the costume contest were Age 0-4    : first place, Melanie Dixon; second place,  Morgan Castonguary; and third,  Caleb Green. Ages 5-8: In first, Dakota Cormier; second place,  Caleb Ouellette; and in third,  Isaac Fox. Ages 9-12: Marissa Green took first place, with  Alexis Simpson taking second.

Thanks to all that helped make this a good time for the children.
