Trick-or-treaters by the hundreds took their time working the business districts as many gradually made their way to the Brewster Boys and Girls Club where more games, treats and fun awaited them.
An extra added feature this year at the BBGC was a Haunted House erected across the entire width of the BBGC gym’s east end. The project was a joint venture by BBGC director Brian Paine and Brewster High School FFA advisor Todd Dezellem.
“We wanted to step up our game this year,” said Paine and the collaboration appeared to more than meet that mark.
Volunteers from BHS and FFA donned costumes and face paint to act as “greeters” inside the scary venue. For youngsters, it was a night of fun, and some fright, from the likes of which memories are made.
