Valley trick-or-treaters had a chance to try out their costumes in advance at a Hallowe’en Activities session at the Madawaska Valley Public Library on Saturday October 27. Kids aged 6 through 12 were welcomed by Program Coordinators Julia Beggs and Emily Mintha. While everyone enjoyed dressing up, listening to stories and playing games, there was one activity that held the kids’ attention throughout: the Exploding Pumpkin. Shown above (clockwise from top left) Program Coordinators Julia Beggs and Emily Mintha, Hannah Dombroskie, Natalie Trebinskie, Drake Trebinskie, Jaxon O’Brien, Aceson O’Brien.
