Downtown Merchants Hold Special Halloween Event

This article first appeared in issue 9, and was written by Linda Waggener.

The newly formed Downtown Columbia Merchants Association has expressed gratitude for the excellent response to their first event-the Decorated Pumpkin Contest on Halloween day.

All the donations from downtown businesses went to assure a safe and fun day for children who entered the contest. The generosity of all the business donations this year allowed for every participant to have a gift.

Judges Ron Cowell and Mark Royce selected the following winners:

Category I (ages 3-6), Tyler Eaton, first place; Rehmmy Belcher, second place; and Macy Feese, third place.

In Category II (ages 7-9) Adam Feese won first; Tisha George second and Malory Feese, third.

Category III (ages 10-12) Tiffany George, first; Hayley Oller, second; and Brittany George, third.

A special thanks goes to B.J. Murad for help with the registration.

1996-11-15 - Photo Mackie's Photo Video. DOROTHY BLEDSOE caught the spirit and dressed up for Halloween. Plus she worked as a volunteer helping out on the square. She gave her time, and even brought candies to give away during the trick or treat hours for young people. So many folks share the interest in having a healthy downtown. Every day someone else like Dorothy Bledsoe gives a gift of time or money or materials in efforts to help the revitalization efforts that continue to grow.
