Mullens Chamber Fills Student Treat Bags | news
Members of the Mullens Region Chamber of Commerce worked with Maben Head Start to fill approximately 550 bags of Halloween treats for students in Mullens Elementary, Mullens Middle and Herndon Consolidated Schools.
“We chose to take goodies to our local schools as an alternative to our annual tailgate, which usually takes place in the Veterans Building in Mullens,” said Ronda Stone, President of the Chamber.
“As Covid is on the rise and our county is in the red, we thought this would be the safest route for everyone involved.”
Local companies and organizations donated sweets for the delicacies.
“Every year they have been kind enough to attend the chamber’s Halloween event,” said a spokesman.
The donors included:
– Corinne First Church of God;
– Lester Salvage, James and Karen Gibson;
– Second Street Railway Station;
– District Judge Mike Cochrane;
– photography in many colors;
– Tankersley Funeral Home;
– district farm;
– Summit Community Bank;
– Highland properties;
– tips 237;
– Mullen’s First Church of God;
– Charlie’s pharmacy;
– Donna Carte;
– EZ Stop Stores;
– Jon McKinney;
– Mullens Prebysterian Church;
– Charlene Cook;
– Jason Mullins;
– Mullens Chamber of Commerce.
Caitlyn Davis of the Mullens Opportunity Center handed out the treats to the two schools that ran trunk-or-treats.
State Farm’s Butch McNeely handed out the remaining treats at the Twin Falls Resort State Park tailgate event.
Chamber members praised those who helped fill the sacks, and especially those who donated sweets.
“We hope that everything will go well in the coming year and that we will be back in the Veterans Building,” said the spokesman.
