Children in the community celebrated Halloween in style at the 31st annual Monster Mash Bash on Saturday, October 25th!

Batman was spotted in a bounce house, Queen Elsa got her face painted, and the Ghostbusters took down the obstacle course with skill.  Over 800 people came to the event to play games, meet famous characters, win prizes, and have a blast.

A community event like this was possible thanks to the help of many, many people. We were very grateful to all of our volunteers for making this event truly special! I send heartfelt thanks to the over 70 area junior and senior high students and adult volunteers who spent the afternoon offering their enthusiastic service at the Bash. 

Thanks also to the Oswego High School for the use of the field house, and Physicians Immediate Care and Kendall 10 Movie Theaters for their support of this event. Thanks to all of the people and community businesses who helped make sure it was fun and safe to be a princess, superhero, or pumpkin this Halloween!
