Happy October from the Colby Volunteer Center! Here at the CVC we are getting into the Halloween Spirit with the planning of our 18th Annual Halloween Extravaganza. This Colby tradition provides children from the Waterville area a safe space to participate in Halloween activities, free of charge! This year the event will be held on Saturday, October 24th from 1pm-3pm. Come join us for face painting, cookie decorating, obstacle courses, and more!
On November 1st
, Colby is hosting the Hardy Girls Healthy Women Annual Freaky
5K. This race is held each year in efforts to fight against the over-sexualization of girls’ Halloween costumes by putting the scary back in Halloween, asking runners to dress up in fun costumes. The Freaky
5K will be held on Sunday, November 1st
at Colby’s Field House. The costume contest will begin at 9:45am
and the 5k run/walk will follow immediately at 10. Registration is $25 for adults and $15 for students. You can register here
. Please, please consider running this race for such an amazing cause, and encourage your department to do the same! Hope to see you on the course!
