'Safe Halloween' to be Held Oct. 29 for Area Children

Posted on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 [11:19 AM]
COLUMBIAKy. -- Halloween will be celebrated Oct. 29 at Lindsey Wilson College for Southcentral Kentucky children. On Thursday, Oct. 29, Lindsey Wilson College will hold its "Safe Halloween," an annual event that gives the region's trick-or-treaters an opportunity to collect candy in Lindsey Wilson's residence halls. 
Parents and guardians can bring children to the Lindsey Wilson Cralle Student Union Building lobby from 6-8 p.m. CT on Thursday, Oct. 29. There is no cost to attend the event.
Lindsey Wilson students will lead children and their parents or guardians through residence halls, where residents will hand out candy. It takes about 40 minutes to canvass the college's residence halls. All items distributed at "Safe Halloween" are individually wrapped, pre-packaged store-bought candy.
This is the 16th consecutive year Lindsey Wilson has held "Safe Halloween" for the region's children. The annual event is as popular among Lindsey Wilson students as it is among area schoolchildren.
"This is one of the big events for our students each year," said Lindsey Wilson Director of Residence Life Andy McAllister. "They put a lot of work into decorating the residence halls and dressing up in costumes. And they love to give candy to the children."
McAllister has worked the event as both a student and as a Lindsey Wilson employee.
"What I love about 'Safe Halloween' is that it helps bring the college and the community together," he said. "It's also a great for families. Parents like 'Safe Halloween' because they know their children will be at a safe environment. And the children like it because they always come away with a big bag of candy."
Lindsey Wilson College's "Safe Halloween" will be from 6-8 p.m. CT Thursday, Oct. 29. For more information about "Safe Halloween," contact Andy McAllister at mcallistera@lindsey.edu or (270) 384-8521."Safe Hall
