Faces of Fun at Children's Halloween Party

The Children's Halloween Party at Utica Post 229 featured an afternoon of entertainment and refreshment for some 40 children on Oct. 30 -- from the funny faces of Ziyara Shrine clowns (Smilo, Bucky, KuKo and Chuckles) to the fun and mischievous appearances of Bumble Bee Josephine Aney, mouse-wiskered Kate Winter and Lorena Brancaccio, and devilishly charming Cinello Denigro. The annual party was sponsored by American Legion Auxiliary Unit 229 and chaired by Eleanor King (who expressed her thanks to the auxiliary and post volunteers). Photos by Mary Stronach.
