Centenary Students to Offer Second Annual Safe Trick-or-Treating Event for Neighborhood Children on Oct. 31 

SHREVEPORT, LA -- Members of the Centenary College community will celebrate Halloween with a free trick-or-treating event for neighborhood children on Oct. 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. on the Centenary campus. 

The Centenary Activities Board is sponsoring the second annual campus-wide trick-or-treat event that will feature events by several student organizations.  Mickle Hall of Science will be full of scientific spooksters, James Hall will offer door-to-door trick or treating and a haunted house, and several Greek organizations will be holding mini-carnivals.  There will also be volunteers handing out candy round the campus and judging a costume contest at the end of the event.  "It is open to kids and parents in the neighborhood as a safe place to trick-or-treat," said student Lisa Game, a member of CAB's Special Events Committee. 

Organizers are offering two separate tours this year, one for children 7 and under and another for 8 to 12 year olds."This separation will be implemented so the little ones are not too scared and the older kids aren't bored," Ms. Game said. 

Festivities will start in the Student Union Building located in the center of campus.  

For further information contact CAB President Jean Ancelet or Ms. Game at 869-5649.
