Safe Halloween option from Sherando’s band

Sherando High School’s Band Boosters and Students are putting on their 15th Annual Safe Halloween Sunday October 30th from noon to 4 pm.

This family friendly event invites you to the haunted hallways of Sherando High School for one of the band’s largest fundraisers.

Last year the safe Halloween celebration welcomed nearly 800 children and their parents which supported the band that just earned their sixth consecutive unanimous Superior rating.

Tickets cost $5 and include access to the Haunted Hallway, a cake walk, moon bounce, Halloween games, and of course, candy.

The event takes place indoors so there is no need to worry about the weather.

They’re malted!

They’re malted and they are fabulous!  One of my favorite candy, mind you the list is long, is the malt ball.  According to Candy Favorites dot com, The idea for malted milk balls originally began in England.  In 1887, William Horlick created malted milk powder. At the time, he thought he would market it as a health food.  Instead, the malted milk powder became a sweetener for everything under the sun.  The idea to sweeten candy with malted milk came to fruition in 1936 when Forrest Malt created Malteasers, a malted milk center covered with chocolate.  It took a few years for the same idea to make it’s way to America.  In 1939, the Overland Candy Company brought Giants onto the scene.  10 years later, in 1949, Giants became Whoppers, the name that’s stuck with them ever since.  Listen to the podcast here; https://theriver953.com/lonnies-fun-fact/
