Strong Start program hosts Halloween party

Strong Start child Nathaniel Weber gets right into the science project of making slime for Halloween.

Vavenby Strong Start had a Halloween party on Oct. 31. The Strong Start routine remained the same, with free playtime and then everyone gathering for a story, songs, and rhymes. The primary class came in to share the snacks. As special treats there were small pumpkin pancakes made by Mary Neathway and decorated with faces by the older children. There also was pizza.

After the snacks the older students left and the Strong Start children did a science project. They made slime to take home and then discussed where they should/shouldn’t play with it. One mother felt the bathtub would be the safest spot but was told that that was actually one of the worst. The slime could clog the drainpipes.

When leaving each child received a Halloween goodie bag which contained books, a CD, and a coloring book all donated by the Bookmobile. There were a few candies as well.

Besides the Strong Start youngsters, other people came to the school on Oct. 31 to get their flu shot.

Coloring contest winners

Winners of the Vavenby General Store Halloween coloring contest were Ryder Jensen, Bret Nolette, Courtney Prince, Gavin Prince, Kylie Prince, Mercy Flegel, Dayton Flegel, Hunter Crystall, and Moira Crystall. They all received popcorn and a free movie rental.

Watch for mischief-makers

There has been some mischief going on around town such as all the pop stolen from the fridge in the community hall. Residents need to keep on the lookout before it gets out of hand.
