The fourth annual Golden Eagle YAN Halloween event attracted 780 visitors and raised nearly $900 in donations. The previous record for the total number of visitors was close to 700. 

“It was a great success. When you see little ones and their parents laughing and smiling in the halls and the activity areas, you know you have succeeded,” said YAN adviser Mr. Cummins McNitt.

The event was sponsored by the Tyrone Youth Action Network with the help of about fifteen other Tyrone student organizations and over 100 student volunteers. 

“It’s good to provide the kids of the community with something safe and eventful that they can look forward to and make memories from for years to come,” said YAN president Elina Lure.

The clubs, sports, and activities involved in this year’s Halloween event were 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.

Some activities for the students included glow in the dark bowling, witch hat ring toss, operation game, creating papel picado, and many more games and crafts.

Through donations at the door, YAN raised nearly $900. A $100 donation was made by a member of the school board to give to the American Red Cross.

“I had many parents tell me that their families now look forward to the Golden Eagle Halloween event more so than ‘Trick or Treat’ night,” said McNitt.

This year the donations went to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund and the Panzi Hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
