Sunshine’s nursery class went “batty” over Halloween.

Dressed in costumes, the children paraded through the

pre-k room, played games, decorated bats, dug for creepy

crawlers in a corn box, listened to spooky stories and

music and shared treats. They all had a “boo-tiful” time!

About 70 dancers attended

the last of Genesee County’s

Adults with Developmental

Disabilities dances at the By-

ron Fire Hall on Thursday,

October, 20th. The Hallow-

een dance usually brings out

some pretty unique characters

and there were lots of creative,

costumed dancers who gath-

ered on the dance floor and

around the cider and donuts.

Friends re-connected as many

had not seen each other since

the May dance. DJ Tom played

some Halloween and usual

favorite tunes that filled the

dance floor. For the very last

time the Byron Firemen many

who have attended nearly ev-

ery dance pulled on their gear

and entered the hall to cheers

as the WMCA was queued up.

Everyone joined in that nostal-

gic dance.

Pat Iamon, dance coordi-

nator and originator, came to

the mic and thanked DJ Tom,

who has been the DJ from the

very first dance. Also, she

thanked her sister, Laura Platt,

Uncle Joe, Barb and Fred Reed

as well the Byron Fire Depart-

ment member volunteers and

seven Byron-Bergen student

volunteers. She went on to

say that over the past 14 years

there have been many, many

volunteers who have helped

make the dances possible.

Dawn Fisher, mom of one

of the dancers came to the

mic and asked Pat and the

other volunteers to come for-

ward so that the dancers could

give them special thanks. Ap-

plause, shouts of thank you

and hugs followed and contin-

ued on for quite a while. DJ

Tom got quite emotional with

all the thanks and goodbyes

and a group of dancers sur-

rounded him with lots of love.

“Although I wanted to re-

tire as dance organizer,” Ia-

mon said, “my goal was to

find a group who would con-

tinue providing this wonder-

ful social opportunity.” At

the May dance Iamon shared

her knowledge in the form of

7-page outline with a group

of interested parents. That

seed planted in May has led

to the start of a new era. “It

is my pleasure,” said Iamon,

“to announce the very first of

two planned dances. The Hol-

iday Bash, hosted by Friends

for the Future Self-Advocacy

Group will be held on Friday,

December 2nd at the ARC of

Genesee Orleans on 38 Wood-

row Road, Batavia. RSVP

by November 30th to Kim

Travale at 585-329-5879.”

All the children at Love Bugs Preschool spent the last few

weeks of October getting ready for one of their favorite

holidays, Halloween! They read Halloween books, made

Halloween crafts and even did Halloween experiments

like an erupting pumpkin volcano! The Nursery and Pre-K

friends had the chance to “trick or treat” at Our Lady of

Mercy’s Parish Office. Father Michael, Father James

and the rest of the office passed our special treats to the

children. It was a day to remember! Pictured here is the

morning Nursery class.
