Halloween Happenings

It's Halloween and lots of activities are going on in Milan. I attended a Halloween party for children this afternoon at the Milan American Legion. The children were so cute, from 14-month-old Tyler Cavins of Milan dressed as a lion to 4-year-old Samantha Barker of Belleville as the tooth fairy and the good witch Ashley Schrock, 10, of Ypsilanti, who came with her grandma, Hope Schrock, a lifelong Milan resident.

We captured video for our Web site, so please check it out. The kids really are adorable as they played miniature golf, hit a ghost pinata filled with candy and painted pumpkins while dressed as dragons, princesses, witches and ghosts.

The American Legion organized the event, and provided hot dogs, juice boxes and treats. Phyllis Russell, president of the Ladies' Auxiliary at the American Legion, helped put together the event and was happy to see us there as we took photos for the newspaper and video for the Web site. I thanked her for her community service. In its fourth year, the Halloween party is a great event for children and a way for the legion to connect with the younger generation and greater community.

Later this evening, the Legion is holding a Halloween party for adults. It's from 8 p.m. to midnight and includes karaoke. If you get a chance, head over there and enjoy the fellowship. They're a friendly bunch of people.
