The Daily Journal Relay for Life Team will host a Halloween Costume Exchange from 5-7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 17 at Central Elementary School. The exchange is open to all ages.
With the economy the way it is, finding a new costume for your child is becoming more and more difficult. When your child outgrows last year’s, you are left to dispose of a costume, used only once. The Daily Journal Relay for Life team hopes to help this dilemma.
You may enter as many new or used costumes as you like. The entree fee is $2 per costume. All of those proceeds benefit Relay for Life of St. Francois County. You price the costume you enter as much or as little as you like. When the event is over, you receive the amount for which the costume sold.
If you have a costume you would like to donate, the Daily Journal team will accept those as well. Costumes of all sizes are welcome.
Several costumes have already been donated. You need not enter a costume in order to shop.
To arrange for drop off of the costumes and to discuss the prices you want to sell them for, contact Jessica Crepps at 573-431-2010 ext. 143 or 573-518-4264.
The Daily Journal Relay for Life team is also hosting a guided tour of one of the area’s scariest houses. On Saturday, Oct. 25, the public is invited to take a haunted tour through Linda Hinkle’s well-decorated yard at 308 South B Street in Bonne Terre. For a small donation to a great cause, bring your children to experience a mad scientist hard at work, walk through a family graveyard, and taste a witch’s brew.
