Support kids, animals at ‘Howloween’
Dear Bonners Ferry Herald:
It is time again for our annual Howloween event.
Can you join us in making some Halloween magic again this year for the children of Bonners Ferry while helping our community’s homeless pets at the same time?
We’re blessed to live in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. In our small town almost everybody knows your name, fundraisers are generously supported, and you can’t walk for exercise because people keep wanting to pick you up and give you a lift. Our new residents learn quickly to wave hello to everyone, because in the final analysis there are no strangers here. But there are limitations to living in a small town, and that’s why we need your help.
Aside from outdoor activities, there’s not a lot to do for children or high school teens, or families. The Rex Theater remains closed, we don’t have a year-round pool, and there’s no meeting place for junior high or teens outside of school.
To help remedy that and provide a fun, exciting, safe annual event, Second Chance Animal Adoption is holding its sixth annual Halloween event at the Animal Shelter & Thrift Store grounds on Friday, Oct. 27, Saturday, Oct. 28, and Tuesday, Oct. 31.
There are special times for younger children featuring stories and games, and extra-amped-up scary times for those teens and brave adults who like their skin to crawl. There is no charge for admission, but we do accept donations. All proceeds help us to give a second chance to the homeless pets of Bonners Ferry.
