On Oct. 26, the Edward Little High School seniors hosted a costume party at the American Legion on Washington Street to raise money for their class. Money raised by the class goes to things like the senior trip and banquet.

I was there at the party, and it was a success in terms of attendance. There were various costumes, some including a “cereal” killer, an undead escort, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and many more.

Special contests happened during the party, including a “mummy-wrap,” pumpkin carving, and best costume for male and female.

“To organize it we had to book a place,” said organizer Kennedy Hubbard, “go to the police department and hire a cop, talk to Evan Mancini about DJing, make tickets up and an event on Facebook and make sure not to involve EL whatsoever because of liability reasons. Then make food for the party as well as get things together for the games like pumpkins, toilet paper and such.”

Troy Shen, treasurer of the senior class and last year’s class president, also commented on the events of the party. “Like last year and the years before, this party was pretty easy to put together, we got a good turnout, and we raised enough money for a profit. Some of the money we gave to the food drive. As far as the party itself, as with any teen party, there were few social opportunities available, so if you didn’t want to get up and grind, there wasn’t much to do. Notably, the party stayed ‘chem-free’ as advertised with the help of the police officer we hired from the department. He was a good guy.”

Tate Howes, senior and party goer, said, “It was a lot of fun and a great fundraiser. It was an excuse to dress up as an undead woman.”

The senior Halloween party, which featured dancing and contests, raised over $500 for the class.
