In the spirit of Halloween, Dawson Community College Associated Student Body (ASB) invites families and friends to gather for two special funtastic and spooktacular events on campus at 300 College Drive.
The college seems unassuming in the days leading up to Halloween but for three days at the end of October watch out! A Haunted House is about to materialize in the Dungeon (basement) of the Main Building on campus.
"We have a great group of students and they are psyched to create the Haunted house. This is our second year and the ASB wants to give the kids in our community another great experience. Our Boo-ccaneer Haunted House is indoors and designed for kids 4 and up. We will be open October 25, 26 and 27 from 6:00 p.m. to midnight. Children 6 and under are $2.00, Adults $5.00. Monies raised from the haunted house will fund student activities, the awards banquet and graduation ceremony. It's going to be spook-tacular!"
DCC will also host TRUNK-OR-TREAT again this year. October 31st from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. the Associated Student Body host trick or treaters to TRUNK-OR-TREAT. This is a free, safe and fun alternative to trick or treating door to door. Children can TRUNK-OR-TREAT around the DCC south parking lot gathering candy from decorated vehicles manned by DCC employees and student club members. Parents can warm up with a complementary hot beverage served by the Buccaneers.
Also at TRUNK-OR-TREAT, a petting zoo provided by the DCC Agriculture Club with sheep, cows and horses on display will provide a wonderful opportunity for young and old a-like to learn about animals and agriculture. "We will be giving away rubber bracelets to the Kiddos too!" said agriculture instructor Leanne Hoagland.
In addition, the Phi Theta Kappa honor society gives back to the community as they host a Conscious Alliance food drive at this year's event. "Individuals who donate five non-perishable food items will receive a "full-sized" candy bar." said PTK advisor, Dr. Michael Booker. Following the TRUNK-OR-TREAT festivities members of Phi Theta Kappa will be trick or treating for non-perishable can goods in the community. Dr. Booker encourages those attending to show support by donating to the food drive.
