2011.11.09 Mary Snyder: Halloween party enjoyed

Written by David Green.

Once again the Halloween party at Wakefield Park on Saturday, Oct. 22, was very well planned, from the haunted house to the maze and, of course, the haunted hayride.

Everything was so well put together and very real life. The haunted house was fun and scary. My granddaughters and I went through it not once, but twice, and it was totally scary. I screamed so loud everyone in Morenci probably heard me. Thank you everyone in the haunted house who put fear in my ol’ heart. You all did an excellent job of making it all look real.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the hayride, it was a lot of fun. It all makes me feel good to call Morenci my home.

Again, thanks to everyone. I’m sure everyone had an excellent time. We sure did and we can’t wait until next year.
