Lions and Beavers, Oh My!
The Blackstone Valley Tech Leo Club hosted a spooktacular drive-thru trick or treat on Halloween. Dressed as ghosts, goblins, and witches galore, wearing required face masks, they came in in all sorts of creative and colorful costumes hoping for candy, of course.
With the traditional Halloween celebration of trick-or-treating looking a little different this year due to COVID-19, the Leo Club wanted to offer younger siblings of BVT students and staff a fun, festive alternative. There were no tricks for those who signed up, just good spirits and treats both healthy and sweet at this outdoor event. Following guidelines, there were limited slots. Even Sporty the Beaver stopped by and had a wildly good time.
"I'm glad that I got involved and joined the Leo Club, said Caitlin Brown of Grafton, a freshman at BVT. I loved volunteering at this event with my friends. It was awesome seeing the kids dressed up and excited to trick-or-treat, especially on this unusual Halloween. My younger siblings enjoyed dressing up and attending. My sister went as a bunny, and my brother a skeleton. They were happy to get some of their favorite treats, Swedish Fish and M&M's."
The BVT Leo Club provides students with an opportunity to contribute to the community through leadership, community service activities, and events. More than 144,000 young people in 139 countries are proud to serve others in their local communities and call themselves Leos. These young community leaders are friendly, active, and dedicated to creating new and exciting youth volunteer opportunities by participating in their local Leo clubs.
Twelve dedicated members of the BVT Leo Club volunteered their time working together with their advisor, Peter Cardoza, a Grafton Lions Club Member, to make this socially distanced Halloween event a sweet success.
