Strafford Halloween Celebration
CANDY COLLECTION IN PROGRESS--PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING THIS WEEK!
Halloween in Strafford is a tradition of creativity, openness and candy! One of the wonderful ways those of us who live on the outskirts of the villages can support our neighbors on the main streets is by donating candy for them to give out (often to our own kiddos!).
If you would like to contribute, please put some candy into the PTA donation box at Coburn's
before October 26.
PTA volunteers will redistribute the goods to centrally-located homes before the 27th.
We will have some houses in each village with designated containers with candies low or free of common allergens. These include skittles, starburst, dots, smarties, almond joy, butterfinger and more. Thank you for thinking about how to make it easier for ALL kids to join in the fun!
Watch for announcements about other PTA-sponsored events that night!
Questions about candy collection/distribution can be directed to Christa Wurm at 765-4111.
