On October 31, creative costumes could be seen throughout Vermilion in the spirit of Halloween.
Vermilion Elementary School’s (VES) gymnasium was filled with staff and students who celebrated with a costume parade. The parade was followed by the finale of the second ‘We Scare Hunger’ food drive. The ‘Me To We Club’ helped organize the food drive, and it was again partnered by Webb’s Ford. VES classes donated nearly 1,000 items to the Vermilion Food Bank.
