Hallowe’en fun turns into community party
at PWL Cold Lake

November 6th, 2017

In the days leading up to Hallowe’en, residents and care partners at Points West Living Cold Lake worked together to create the atmosphere; with scary decorations, spooky pumpkins and creepy cookies. Then on the big day, almost everyone got into costume to welcome trick-or-treaters, and prepare for a costume party.

Amazing costumes

“All care partners joined in on the costume fun as did the residents,” says recreation coordinator Angela Benoit. “Some residents even got special manicures with orange and black nail polish. There were some amazing costumes.”

Hanging out the pumpkin

“Each resident who chose to give out candy was given a paper pumpkin to tape to their door so the little trick-or-treaters would know where the candy was,” Angela says, adding that the PWL Cold Lake resident council also purchased some candy, which was bagged by two residents and handed out to the 75 children who came a-knocking. “Residents really seemed to enjoy seeing the little ones all dressed up.”

Spooky creative treats

The kitchen team cooked up some spooky-creative and delicious treats, including a queasy melon, a spooky cheese plate, monster bites, dirt brownie cake, pumpkin spice eyeballs (truffles), and tasty dip with pita chips. Also on hand was local musician Dan McCafferty who played music for the Hallowe’en party. “The music brought back memories for our residents who love good ol’ country music.”
