VITERBO STUDENT GROUPS ORGANIZE HALLOWEEN EVENTS BENEFITTING LA CROSSE COMMUNITY

LA CROSSE, Wis.—In keeping with tradition, two Viterbo University student organizations have organized Halloween-related events that benefit the La Crosse community.

Safe Trick-or-Treat: Viterbo University will provide a safe and fun environment for children, ages 12 and under, to celebrate Halloween during the annual Safe Trick-or-Treat event on Sunday, Oct. 27, from 7-9 p.m.

Children can trick-or-treat from dorm-to-dorm and play games and visit a Haunted House in the Student Union, 827 Winnebago Street. All Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The event is sponsored by the student chapter of the Wisconsin Education Association (St.WEA) with support from students in the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse chapter.

Trick-or-Treat for Place of Grace: Place of Grace, a local Catholic worker house, will benefit from the work of the Connect Club on Halloween night (Oct. 31) as members of the club will hit South Side neighborhoods, from 5:30-8 p.m., in search of non-perishable food items.

Connect is a Viterbo-sponsored club, which educates students about healthy lifestyles and low-risk choices.

According to Club Secretary Staci Arndt, Connect also wants to perform community service "as a way of making our club well-rounded." This will be the fourth year that Connect is coordinating the event.

"The response has been great," Arndt said. "Neighbors know who we are, and many already have bags ready when we arrive."
