The Riverbender.com Community Center hosted it's second annual Middle School Halloween Dance on Saturday, October 29, 2011. Attendees enjoyed all the games and features of the Center as well as a new addition to dances, a photo booth set-up in the basement vault. After playing games, dancing to the DJ and singing karaoke, a costume contest was held for those dressed for the occasion.
First Place winners were Joe Retzer, Sam Gentelin and Quinn Cartwright (pictured); Second Place winner was Julian Watt; and Third Place winners were Jayda Armstead and Sammy Lipe. Winners were awarded with prize buckets filled with candy and coupons from Hit-N-Run, McDonald's and Blockbuster Video.
