Things have been looking up lately for Hallows Gallows, our upcoming event for this Halloween. (Yay ) For those of you who don’t know, Roots and Shoots will be hosting an event called “Hallows Gallows: The Place to Hang” at the Buttonwood Park Zoo this year. This event will include a Haunted House, a DJ (and Dancing, of course), a Hayride, and even a Costume contest. It’ll be loads of fun. This Sunday, we finally got our flyers pretty much straightened out, and by the middle of this week, they should be ready to give to our anxious audience. A Bunch of my friends have already been asking me for some flyers. Along with that, Alyssa, Cassandra, and I (Nick!) will talk to our Guidance Counselor to try and get permission to put the flyers up around the school, and to even get our event announced on the announcement. Thanks to our lovely supervisor, Ms. Erine (NOT ERNIE) Anderson, we even have a form that might just help us to get our schools’ help. And yes, I did say “schools,” as in plural. Alysha is going to try and get New Bedford High and Fairhaven High to help advertise our event as well, which could add a huge boost to the amount of attendees we will have at the party.
Boo! No, I’m not trying to scare you, I’m talking about Boo At The Zoo. I know, that was the corniest, lamest thing you could ever read, but oh well. Halloween is coming up so I get to be “candy-corny.” Haha, get it? …Okay, I’ll stop. Anyways, Boo at the Zoo. Our members have split into groups and will be setting up a candy table at different nights of Boo at the Zoo, spreading the word of Hallows Gallows as we do so.
Now we just need to get our staffing set up, and then take action. I’m pretty stoked to see how it will go over. And that Haunted house seems pretty cool, too. Can’t wait!
