Dawn Jones Remember this well. Did not partake as my parents would never let us go into town. We always stayed in the village of Clayton. Can remember the folks from the Citizen coming out to do a story and trying to interview students at the high school.

D Christopher Vaughan Yes, we were infamous back then. Halloween was always spent with a couple of hundred kids at the pool room corner.
