VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT
   
                                          
 
              All the Volunteers
      Who Made Halloween Fun


With multiple Halloween festivities throughout Northeast Mississippi, there were many, many opportunities for volunteers to create fun, scary, and memorable moments for children of all ages.


Volunteers from the Amory Food Pantry hosted a very successful Trunk-or-Treat.


In Tupelo, organizations and businesses along Jefferson Street provided games and treats for the entire family.


The New Albany Main Street Association made sure the little ones had a safe and happy Halloween.


Thank you to all the volunteers who planned events, decorated vehicles and buildings, bought candy, baked goodies, dressed in costumes, directed games, and made this Halloween so much fun for so many children. And let's not forget all the folks who cleaned up afterwards! We're already looking forward to next year!
