There are three things you can be sure of in this life: death, taxes, and the Community Living Halloween Party!

Assistant Director Carrie Griffith first organized the event 15 years ago (read more about the history here). A decade and a half has passed and it keeps getting bigger and better. This year people even brought guests from outside ACT!

“The individuals we serve in Community Living (CL) wanted to participate in the holiday by dressing up and socializing. The Costume Party was created to meet that need.”

What’s a Halloween party with out a costume contest?

This year’s winners were Minna, Barbi, Tammy, and Manager Vicki Schulte, who together came as The Village People, and danced to the music of YMCA. Best Individual Costume went to Drew, who dressed as Bob Barker from the Price is Right. Best Staff Costume went to CL Manager Larry Barnette (also the party DJ) as Smartie Pants.

Had there been a category for fitting into two groups’ themes, that prize would have gone to Schulte, who dressed as a construction worker. She was a perfect fit for the Village People and Price is Right.

Heath, who dressed as Jason from the movie Halloween, says, “I had an awesome time. There was great music and cool dancing…I broke out a few maneuvers myself.”

There was lots of Pizza, cookies, treat bags, dancing, fun and trying to figure out who everyone was!
