We are gearing up for the ninth annual, free Halloween Carnival.
This year, the carnival will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 31, 4-6 p.m. at the Ross Aragon Community Center.
Food will be provided by the Kiwanis Club.
The community center is asking local businesses, individuals and groups for donations and is seeking volunteers to help with the carnival. You can donate your time, candy, games, baked goods and, of course, cash. Donations are always welcome and appreciated by both the staff at the community center and and by the members of the community who attend the event.
