Trunk or Treat

Councillor’s Corner - Wednesday November 9, 2016
Well I had a wonderful Halloween being a part of our Halloween activities. First, I was able to enjoy to Halloween Dance that the Royal Canadian Legion hosted on October 29th and it was a really good time. There were plenty of wonderful door prizes and fun to go around. Hornepayner’s are creative and it took me all evening to figure out who some people were under their masks. On October 31st, carving pumpkins with the students in Mr. J. Schryer’s Art Class at Hornepayne High School was a highlight for me. The students were a delight to be around and we have some pretty awesome teenagers. The Art Class carved beautiful pumpkins for the “Pumpkin Patch” and while we were working the younger children from the Hornepayne Public School paraded through in all their costumes. It was a great time and I am glad to have been a part of the festivities. The children all seemed to be having a wonderful time. Later that afternoon the “Pumpkin Patch” was created in the back of my pickup. The “Pumpkin Patch” became part of the Trunk or Treat hosted by the Hornepayne Public Library. A big thanks to Darnelle Hill, Library CEO and the library staff for organizing a fun and safe event for celebrating Halloween. It was really a fun experience. The costumes were so cute; from princesses to pokemon, to characters from another planet and of course, a variety of superheroes. The Township’s Pumpkin Patch was voted 2016 Best Trunk, a wonderful surprise for our first time participating and thank-you for all your votes. The trunk was only created with the support and help of people in our community; thank-you to Mr. J. Schryer’s Art Class, Tiffany Latoski, Emma Dane, Craig Paul, Laureen Stefanic of the Best Start Hub, and of course, our own Town Council. Looking forward to next year’s event and I already have a few ideas brewing. I hope you all had a good Halloween. #trickortreat
