California High School holds annual Trick-or-Treat on Pinto Street
Wednesday, November 9, 2011
California High School held the 10th annual Trick-or-Treat on Pinto Street on Tuesday, Oct. 25, in the high school commons. The entry fee was one canned good to be given to the local food bank.
The National Honor Society committee members developed the plan for this event. By charging one can to get in, the families not only have a good time but also help out the community.
“There were too many canned donations to count! I would say well over 300 cans plus some cash donations,” said Cara Duenow, CHS counselor.
Over 13 clubs and organizations participated this year. Some activities the children could enjoy were mini golf, pin the tail on the businessman, a hay maze, fishing, coloring pages, face painting and more.
“I would like to extend out into the classrooms next year. It gets way too crowded and too hot in the commons,” said Duenow.
The hay maze seemed to be the most favored activity, which was run by FFA and the Drama club. Participating members of the clubs and organizations dressed up adding an extra element of fun to the evening.
Chely Aguero, CHS senior, said, “My favorite part of the night was seeing all the different costumes!”
This year’s Trick-or-Treat on Pinto Street was a great success. It is a fun and safe environment for the families. CHS hopes for many more successful years to come.
