Spooktacular has larger than expected turnout


The Halloween Trick-or-Treat Spooktacular at Somerset Elementary School was a huge success, said event coordinator Beckah Whitlock.

Whitlock is co-chair of the Disabilities Awareness Committee (DAC) for the Somerset School District, which hosted the fundraising event.

Almost 650 people attended, which is way more than expected, Whitlock said. They raised almost $1,300 in ticket sales.
