"Trick-or-Treat with TWC" at annual Halloween event

Posted on: October 16, 2013

This year's "Trick-or-Treat with TWC" will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 29.

For more than a decade Tennessee Wesleyan College has hosted “Trick-or-Treat at TWC,” the college’s annual Halloween event. Through candy donations from TWC faculty, staff and students, the college is able to open its doors to community children and offer a safe environment for free Halloween activities and candy. This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 29 from 7 to 9 p.m. on the college’s Wesley Commons Lawn.

“Tennessee Wesleyan students truly enjoy hosting this family friendly event for our faculty and staff as well as the Athens/McMinn community,” said Dr. Scott Mashburn, TWC vice president for student life.

“The community continuously supports TWC and our students see providing this event for community children as one way to give back. TWC students always look forward to interacting with the children at the various games and activities.”

Sponsored by various student organizations at TWC, “Trick-or-Treat at TWC” has been designed to offer safe Halloween activities for children to participate in.

“Our goal is to provide an excellent opportunity for a safe trick-or-treating option for parents and kids,” said Jo Baldwin, TWC director of residence life.

“We’re very much looking forward to this year’s event and hope parents and their children will dress up and come enjoy these free Halloween festivities.”
