10/27/19 Haunt History Park SJ

By Judy Wong, 2019 CHCP Treasurer

I would label the event a success. Many Haunt History Park attendees stopped at our site to play slingshot bats and jumping spiders, then proceeded to our bat magnet assembling and finger puppets.  The orange information and activities handout was well received.  Student Volunteer Kendrick was very good about offering the handout while explaining it contained more information about bats and their good luck qualities.
