Workplace Family Halloween Idea
Contributed by Mary Ann Wieczkowski
It’s the time of year to plan ahead for Halloween. Here’s how you can make it special.
One year at work, three departments participated in the following activity together. These departments were located in the same building on different floors.
We selected the floor that had the most conference rooms and empty offices.
Different groups selected a room or office to decorate. We had a haunted cave, a swamp, and other spooky settings. There were awards for the decorated rooms.
We also had a costume contest with awards. In addition, each of those decorated rooms was a trick or treat station.
Employees brought their children to the office to go trick or treating during designated hours.

There is a senior citizen driving on the highway.
His wife calls him on his cell phone and in a worried voice says, “Herman, be careful! I just heard on the radio that there is a madman driving the wrong way on Route 280!”
Herman says, “I know, but there isn’t just one, there are hundreds!”
