ATHENS—Halloween at the Hatchery will take place at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center (TFFC) October 30, and local businesses and organizations are invited to take part.

TFFC offers three ways to take part in this annual event that benefits local charitable organizations. A business or organization may sponsor the event by making a cash contribution to defray the costs of decorations and publicity. Another way to be involved is to give away candy to the children who will attend.

If you are really into the Halloween spirit, consider taking on responsibility for decorating an area at TFFC for the event. Areas will be judged during the event and prizes awarded.

The event will run from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 30. Organizations giving away candy are expected to provide enough candy for 2,500 children. Participating businesses are welcome to hand out their own promotional materials along with the candy.

Halloween at the Hatchery is a Friends of TFFC event. There is no charge for booths.

Anyone interested in participating in the event or becoming a sponsor should contact Jim Booker by October 15 at (903) 670-2266 to reserve a space.
