For the first time, the Palatine Jaycees held a Halloween Party for Special
Needs individuals and their immediate families.
About 150 people came to the event at Fremd High School on Wednesday, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. They enjoyed multiple games including bowling, Halloween Buckets and Ring the Witch's Hat. Guests had the opportunity to take home a photo and all the treats they could collect.
Thank you to McDonald's at 1576 N. Rand Road in Palatine for cookies and toys, The Knights of Columbus (N. American Martyrs Council #4338) for the Tootsie Roll Banks, and Ma and Pa's Country Candy in Long Grove for donating 7 pounds of candy.
