Annual Contume DriveWe are holding a Costume Drive to benefit the Halloween Party at Commercial Park.  Each year, the Commercial Park Advisory Council sponsors a free Halloween party that is open to all.  There is a trick-or-treat parade, refreshments, games, fortune tellers, puppet shows, crafts, and many other activities.  One of the most popular attractions is the Costume Room, which provides free costumes to children of all ages and sizes that could not otherwise afford to purchase a costume of their own.  The Costume Room is supplied entirely by community donations.

To assist with this worthy cause, CPAC holds a Costume Drive to collect donations of new and gently used costumes.  We need costumes of all shapes and sizes, from the smallest to the largest.  They can be dropped off at Commercial Park (1845 W. Rice St., M-F, 10-9, Sat. 9-5).  Please ask for Mary or Ms. Young, who will be more than happy to accept your donation.

halloweencostumescliparve8It is that spooky time of year when ghosts and goblins have crept into our neighborhood.  Lets welcome them with sweet treats and good times at the annual Commercial Park Halloween Party on October 31st from 2-3:15.

We need volunteers to bake one batch of cupcakes and deliver them to the park anytime on Friday the 30th or Saturday the 31st before noon.  We really need your help!  Please spread the word so there will enough cupcakes for everyone!

We are also looking for volunteers to help on the day of the party.   We are specifically looking for 1 or 2 additional fortune tellers.  The kids love to hear glimpses of what there future holds, can you help?

Leave a comment below (it will not be posted) with your information and how you can help (cupcakes, fortune teller, decorating, etc.) And we will be in touch with you.  Thanks!
