Letter: Monster Mash made more memorable by community

Editor,

Whidbey Children’s Theatre (WCT), along with the South Whidbey High School Drama Club’s Haunted Asylum, took over the historic Pole Building at the Island County Fairgrounds on Oct. 26 and put on an eerily good show for South Whidbey. This was our largest attendance to date and all who came had fun.

This could not have happened if members of this community had not once again stepped up and helped out. Blue Sound Music provided the sound system that pumped out great music all night long, and Emcee Bobbi Jo Blessings kept the festivities rolling. Second Hand Booty in Clinton helped with providing decorations for the hall. Ghosts, goblins and spiders hung from the rafters. Elise Kostal’s Girl Scout Troop provided face-painting skills that transformed munchkins into butterflies and dragons. Kelly West told futures and destinies to those who were brave enough to ask. The Goose Grocer and Payless Foods helped feed the monster’s hunger and sweet tooth. The SWHS Drama Club’s Haunted Asylum had people going through multiple times, it was that spooky!

The night was fun for the participants and for all the volunteers who helped. Thank you for making this year’s Monster Mash one to remember. Join us for this year’s Season of Heroes, starting with The Hobbit on Nov. 15.
