On October 28, Open Arms Preschool had our first “Fall Festival” and it was a huge success.  Almost 200 people attended.  The fellowship hall was decorated with children’s Halloween art, spiderwebs, and banners.  Activities were provided in each class room: decorating pumpkins, Halloween mask coloring, spider web crafts, tattoo’s.  One of the teachers, Miss Yaniza, offered a special music time.  The parents contributed food and we bought pizza.  Party bags were given to every child.
