tricks, just treats
“Trick or Treat give me something good to eat” is what we hear when our door bell rings on Halloween night. This year the Drug Free Group from Prairie High School will be coming around ringing those doorbells, but instead of asking for a treat they will be asking you for a donation for the local food bank.
The students will accept any canned or boxed food items. Also, personal items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, soap and shampoo are always needed.
There are 70 students from PHS who have signed a pledge to remain alcohol, tobacco and drug free for this school year. The group sponsors activity nights after the home football and basketball games for entire student body. These nights have been very successful, in fact, after the Genesee football game there was a record 91 students in attendance. They enjoyed a night of volleyball, basketball, video games, eating great food and just hanging out!
They also enjoy their monthly activities such as a bowling night, going to the theatre, skiing and of course the annual Lewiston Christmas shopping and light night. As a community we should be very proud of these teens for making these wise and healthy choices as they move towards adulthood.
So, when the doorbell rings on Halloween night please support these teens in their community service. Happy Halloween.
