The fourth annual YAN Halloween event will be held at the Tyrone High School on Tuesday, October 24th from 5-7. The event is for children in fourth grade or below and their families.

“I love being a part of the Halloween event because seeing the little kids makes me so so happy,” said YAN treasurer Olivia Watson. 

Children and their families are encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costumes. At the school there will be activities, crafts, and treats for the students as well as a bag of goodies at the entrance.  

The annual Golden Eagle Halloween Celebration is a way for the high school to build bridges with the Elementary School students, families and staff, as well as with the community.”

Last year, a little under 700 kids came out to the event. This year YAN hopes to reach the 700 attendance level and possibly exceed it.

“The annual Golden Eagle Halloween Celebration is a way for the high school to build bridges with the Elementary School students, families and staff, as well as with the community.  We want our younger students to be able to make smooth transitions to the upper-class levels,” said YAN adviser, Mr. Cummins McNitt.

The clubs involved in this year’s Halloween event are YAN, Choir/POPS, Marching Band, Speech Team, Renaissance, HOSA, Anatomy & Physiology Classes, Eagle Eye News, Spanish Club, Nutrition Group, Administrative & Guidance Staff, Football Team, National Honor Society, Soccer Team, and Middle School Student Council.

“[It’s important] to teach kids to give back at an earlier age by doing something so simple like going to an event,” said Watson.

Voluntary donations of $2 per person and $5 per family are welcomed but not required. This year’s donation amount will be split between the Panzi Hospital of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.

The group typically raises $700 from the event and hopes to have the same outcome this year.

“We are here to help our young families and to teach them through example the value of volunteerism and the value it brings our community,” said McNitt.
