Jr. Beta Halloween Dance a success


By Shea Osteen

Ghosts, goblins, skeletons and zombies – oh my! Cedar Key’s Jr. Beta Club threw a thriller Halloween party, Friday Oct. 25.  The party was kept small, only allowing middle school through ninth graders to attend. 

It was held in the auditorium, decorated with spooky Halloween decorations to match the occasion. Tons of kids came out to dance the night away and had a blast. 

Jr. Beta held contests for best dressed, most original and a toilet paper wrapping zombie contest. The overall best dressed was Trey Stanfield in first; Holly Bishop and Terra Dunn in second; Tim Belcher in third; Anna Paulsen won the scariest costume overall; Kris Burns won the most original; the funniest costume was won by Cassie Lozier; the coolest costume overall was won by Chad Davison.
