Goblins find Healthy Treats in Colebrook
The Colebrook (NH) Kiwanis Club held their annual children’s Halloween Party on Sunday, October 29th at the Colebrook Elementary School gym for local area children. This year, instead of handing out candy for all the prizes, they bought toy prizes and also gave out coins at the game stations and in the piñatas and balloons. They wanted to offer a healthier Halloween to the children and tie into the local schools’ focus this year on childhood obesity and related illnesses such as diabetes. The party was well attended by over 150 children. Over thirty Kiwanis Club members worked on the party and two local Key Clubs, Colebrook Academy and Canaan High School, helped with all the games and festivities.
