The Rotary Club of Peabody sponsored two Halloween events for families in DCF.  Our INTERACT group coordinated and ran a Halloween Costume Shop for kids who may not have otherwise been able to get costumes.  The event, made possible by donated costumes and these dedicated Rotary teens, was an enormous success.  This was followed by a Halloween Party for DCF families who may not otherwise be able to see their siblings during the year.  This year's event tripled in size with happy reunions, food, costumes and activities generously donated by the community. 
Rotary Peabody would especially like to thank: 
*Yellow Jacket Gymnastics and JC Hicks Property Services for pumpkins and activities
*City of Peabody for the use of the Higgins Auditorium and logistical assistance
*Texas Roadhouse for supplying food for everyone
*Kristen Davis for volunteering face painting fun
*Northeast ARC for logistical and planning assistance
*Rotary Peabody INTERACT for planning and execution of the costume shop. 
This was a true community effort to give kids who may not otherwise have had the opportunity to have costumes, a Halloween Party and a family reunion. Rotary Peabody is proud to be a part of this growing event for several years.
