The Providence Bay Halloween Dance was a howling great time. The hall was well decorated and everyone in attendance was dressed up in stunning costumes. The DJ was fantastic and had the dance floor packed the whole night. The lunch was delicious and hit the spot at the end of the night. Thank you to all of you who volunteered your time either working the dance and/or supplying all the goodies. They had a hard time picking the winners for the best costumes as everyone looked so great. The winners of the best dressed couple went to Keith and Brenda McAllister who dressed up as Snow White and Dopey. The individual winners were Pat O’Leary as a cave woman, Jackie Patterson as Poison Ivy, Maria Diebolt as a jellyfish and Leah McAllister as Tinkerbell. Congratulations to all!
