Safe Halloween & Book Give Away

The Fair Oaks Theatre Festival hosted their annual Safe Halloween event, welcoming children in costume to their decorated entryway with games and prizes, face painting and Trick or Treating at participating

Following the lead of the Rotary’s Year of Literacy project, they collected between 500-600 books to be distributed at the event. The books were sorted into age groups: toddler and preschool, various grade levels up to 6th grade and those most likely to be used as a teacher’s reference book. They also had 2 to 3 different reading “stations” in the village where a child could go to take a break and listen to a story being read.
