Halloween Parade

Halloween-ParadeEach year, Stillwater Sunrise Rotary organizes and sponsors an event that bring together community youth and seniors at Boutwells Landing in Oak Park Heights.  Hundreds of  children wind through the main floor of the main building at Boutwells, where residents provide trick or treat snacks.   Fund raising for Rotary Polio Plus is a key component of the event, and hundreds of dollars are typically collected to immunize children in countries where polio has not yet been controlled.

Please contact us if you are interested in sponsoring this wonderful event!

The most chairs and wheelchairs in nearly a dozen years were jammed into the entire length of Boutwells main-building corridor, even curling around the ends near the exits.  Seated on them were Boutwells seniors, eager to fill buckets and pumpkin containers of the 300 kids who braved the wet and cold to parade through Boutwells warm, dry, well-lit corridors.  

Co-chairs Mark Fisher and Barbara Tischart of Stillwater Sunrise Rotary Club and Georgene Gray of Boutwells, the two sponsoring organizations, both declared this ninth year “another success,” even though numbers were down a bit due to the weather.
The 7th Annual Walmart Halloween Parade attracted over 500 children to Boutwells Landing Senior Living Center Wednesday evening where over 70 seniors handed out lots and lots of candy.  Walmart contributed the candy and Sunrise Rotarians made sure that the senior residents had plenty of treats for the kids.  In addition, the Stillwater H.S. Pep Band entertained the folks as they waiting in line on a beautiful fall evening.
Nearly 600 Halloween tricks-or-treaters marched through Boutwells Landing’s Town Square Monday evening October 29, 2007, to the tune of Stillwater High School’s increasingly popular Pep Band. They dropped 250 pounds of donated food into containers set up by Sunrise Rotary, and garnered at least that much candy in return.
Thank you to our event sponsors!
