Halloween at the Hatchery Preparations Under Way
ATHENS—Halloween at the Hatchery takes place at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center (TFFC) October 24, and local businesses and organizations are invited to take part.
TFFC offers three ways to take part in this annual community service event that benefits local charitable organizations. A business or organization may sponsor the event by making a cash contribution to defray the costs of decorations and publicity. Another way to be involved is to give away candy to the children who will attend.
If you are really into the Halloween spirit, consider taking on responsibility for decorating an area at TFFC for the event. Areas will be judged during the event and prizes awarded.
The event will run from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 24, 2013. Organizations giving away candy are expected to provide enough candy for 3,000 children. There is no charge for booths at the event.
Halloween at the Hatchery is a Friends of TFFC event.
Anyone interested in participating in the event or becoming a sponsor should contact Jim Booker by at (903) 670-2266 to reserve a space.
