FFA, FBLA, and FCCLA joined forces to put together a Halloween Carnival for elementary school-age children on October 28. Held in Millbrook’s commons, Redbud Elementary students came dressed in costumes, ready to play games and get candy. The games included ring toss, mini golf, mini bowling, musical chairs, bingo, and many others. There was also a table set up for coloring creepy pictures and another table for getting faces painted.
It cost $1 per scary creature and all proceeds went towards the Henry & William Evans Home for Children, Inc. (a.k.a The Evans Home). According to the Evans Home website, in operation since 1977, more than 500 children have called The Henry and William Evans Home for Children home. The Home utilizes local public educational programs, mental health practitioners, community parks, recreational facilities and programs, churches, and the Youth Development Center. The Evans Home has many activities for the residents, including swimming, volunteer projects, team sports, karate, and so many more. They also have their own dog named Willie. He loves to curl up in the childrens’ laps and he falls asleep with a different child every night. He chases away the boogieman, gives snuggles when needed, and steals things left on the floor.
