Halloween Fun Fest was an
absolute success. Last Thursday local youth were invited to the
annual event that takes place at the Lincoln Park District facility.
Over 500 children flocked to the free event, with a total of 1,100
to 1,200 including family members. A spokesman for the park district
said he was very glad to see the level of participation in the
Maple Ridge Care Centre, Logan County
4-H, Lincoln Public Library, ESDA, the Girl Scouts, Lincoln City
Fire Department and Lincoln Police Department rounded out the
agencies that sponsored games. Lincoln Park District was responsible
for 11 of the 16 games that were offered.
The judges' table was challenged to
choose winners from 300 competitors. The "esteemed panel of judges"
was composed of Park District Commissioner Dave Perring, Lincoln
Rural Fire Protection District Fire Chief Bob Thomas, Logan County
Sheriff Steve Nichols, Lincoln City Police Chief Bob Rawlings and
Lincoln City Fire Department Chief Bucky Washam. The men worked hard
to earn their meager wages of a bottle of water.

The success of Halloween Fun Fest is achieved by cooperation of the
local business community and volunteers. The event is financed by
local businesses. The National Honor Society of LCHS was the
backbone of the labor pool.
