Time to scare up some fun

Are you ready for some Halloween fun?

The annual Osakis Community Halloween Party is set for Wednesday, Oct. 31 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Osakis High School cafeteria.

Kids should dress in their Halloween costumes and be prepared for a lot of candy, fun and prizes.

The party is for children through sixth grade. The kids will enjoy a light supper of hot dogs, chips, cookie and punch. Adults and older kids can eat for a $1 donation.

Game tables will be set up around the perimeter of the cafeteria and each table will feature different games.

Children will also have the opportunity to complete a craft project that they may take home. Door prizes will also be awarded.

Those interested in volunteering should call Deb Murphy at 320-293-4491.

The event is co-sponsored by the Osakis Women's Association and the Osakis School District with financial support from the VFW, Osakis Lions, and the VFW Auxiliary.
