It’s Halloween Thursday and the culmination of nearly a week of spooky and delightful activities for young and old alike.
What could be more appropriate than giving blood on Halloween? You can do that on Thursday during a blood donor clinic at the Chemainus 55+ Activity Centre on Willow St.
Many appointment times are available throughout the afternoon. All you have to do is drop in and give a pint.
The Chemainus Business Improvement Association hosted its annual Trick or Treat Chemainus event Saturday, with a large number of children taking advantage of the additional trick or treating opportunity as a warm-up for the actual day.
Businesses opened their doors to trick or treaters and many owners and employees dressed up in costumes as well while handing out candy. There were also numerous activities for the kids.
The Royal Canadian Legion 191 is hosting a Halloween party for the kids Thursday, starting at 5 p.m. at the Legion Hall on Chemainus Road.
Other events in the lead-up to Halloween included the Ladysmith Dogwood Trefoil Guild Halloween Party at the St. Michael’s Church Hall in Chemainus Monday.
The party highlighted the Guiding Spirit still lives on no matter what your age. The ladies dressed in very creative costumes, including such ingenious ideas as a “smart cookie”, “cereal killer” and a trio of piggies in the Witness Protection Program hiding out from the Big Bad Wolf.
Tamar Dewey used her name for a twist on her little free library costume – as in the Dewey decimal system. Get it?
There was even some gruesome, but delicious food to suit the occasion.
