The Ghosts and Goblins will be loose Halloween Night!

Monday, October 27, 2008

Attention Brazil and Clay City residents ... be on the lookout for ghosts, goblins, pirates, princesses and who knows what else Halloween night. But don't be frightened if they come to your door and say, "Trick or Treat for canned goods!"

Yes, you heard me correctly. These young people will be trick or treating for food instead of candy.

The Clay County 4-H Junior Leaders are collecting canned goods for the local food pantries. All of the food collected will go to local agencies to help those who are less fortunate than we are. With the holidays just around the corner, all of the local agencies are being stretched to the limit and the Jr. Leaders want to help lessen the burden. Our goal is to collect 500 pounds of food.

You will be able to identify these young people as 4-H members as they will have a sticker on that says "I am the face of 4-H." They will be trick or treating from 6-7 p.m. on Halloween night. Please donate to this worthy cause and help someone in need; you will feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

I hope you have noticed how clean State Road 59 has been between 700 N and 500 N, out by the 4-H fairgrounds. The Junior Leaders have adopted this two-mile stretch of road and have had two clean-up sessions. It is amazing what you find alongside the road!

These young people do an amazing job and I am so proud they chose to do this project.
