The following is from an email sent out by State Rep. Jessica Farrar:
Halloween is right around the corner. That means kids of all ages will be dressing up and looking to have fun with family and friends this Wednesday evening. Unfortunately, it is not always safe for our children to be out knocking on doors and trick-or-treating, so we have to come up with alternatives that still allow them to take part in this great holiday.
That is why I am happy to announce that I, along with the Houston Parks and Recreation Department and Latinas on the Rise, will be hosting the 6th Annual Monster Mash at Moody Park (3725 Fulton) and the 1st Annual Fall Festival at Proctor Plaza Park (803 W. Temple). Both parties are scheduled from 6:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. on Wednesday, October 31, 2007. These two simultaneous events are meant to serve as SAFE, FUN, and FREE options for the children and families in our community on Halloween night. We'll have music, games, food, candy, a haunted house, facepainting, and costume contests for everyone that comes out.
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN. We need more community volunteers to help us with the Monster Mash and the Fall Festival. We could use your help at either of our events at the following times, even if it's just for an hour or two:
* Tuesday, October 30th, 5:00 P.M.-9:00P.M. (Initial haunted house set-up)
* Wednesday, October 31st, 10:00 A.M.-5:30 P.M. (Finish haunted houses and set-up for rest of parties)
* Wednesday, October 31st, 5:30 P.M.-9:00 P.M. (Volunteer during parties)
* Wednesday, October 31st, 9:00 P.M.-10:30 P.M. (Clean-up)
