Sat, 26 Oct 2013 02:46:27 GMT — Some local boys and ghouls gathered at the Wesley Community Center today (Oct. 25) for an evening of Halloween fun and games. The second annual "Spooktacular Monster Fest" featured a costume contest, a haunted house, and all kinds of games for kids. The event is a fundraiser for the WCC, which offers programs for all ages ranging from sports and after-school programs for kids to social clubs and health care for seniors. The WCC has been in Amarillo since 1951, and it's been an important part of many people's lives over the years. "I think it's being able to help people and make a difference in their lives," says Executive Director Liz RascÃ³n, "Everything from reading a book to our infants or our kindergarten classroom, all the way to our after school programs - coming to help them and teach them, and maybe they might have a passion that they can teach our children."
