One of Swift Current's longest-standing service clubs will be hosting a fun alternative to trick-or-treating for youth in the Swift Current area.

The 43rd annual Spookarama organized by the Kiwanis Club of Swift Current tomorrow night will be held at the Colonel Clifton Centre for students in grades six through eight.

"There's a great group of kids in grades six to eight and they look forward to it," Kiwanis Club Member Deb Fletcher said. "What we love is, if the kids are happy, we're happy."

"They love to see other friends from different parts of the city as well as out of town," Kiwanis Club Member Larry Johnson said. "They enjoy the music and the kids have a good time and we're looking forward to seeing that."

The doors to the dance open at 7 p.m. and close at 9 p.m. with the event running until 11 p.m. for students attending school in Swift Current, Hazlet, Waldeck, Success, and Wymark. 

"Any students wishing to leave early have to phone a parent or guardian for a ride," Fletcher said. "The students won't be allowed to walk home alone and that's because we care about them. We want them to stay safe. The Kiwanis is all about looking after the kids."
