Kershaw County Parks and Recreation, Kimbrell’s Furniture and SAFE Federal Credit Union are sponsoring the Annual Trick-or-Treat Trail and invite organizations to participate. The event will be held on Thursday, October 31 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Rhame City Arena, 517 Broad Street. Local businesses, agencies, and organizations are encouraged to participate by dressing in costume, decorating Halloween booths, and distributing treats, prizes and candy to the costumed children who participate.

The Annual Trick-or-Treat trail is designed to provide children (ages 12 and under) with a safe and friendly atmosphere for their Halloween evening. Last year, approximately 1,000 children participated in this event. Understandably, this can be a costly occasion so groups are welcome to partner with one another to help share in the expense of giving goodies to such a large crowd.

Set up for the event will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 pm on day of event. Please bring sufficient candy and/or prizes for your booth.

A table and two chairs will be provided for the booths, if you require additional materials please bring those with you. Open flames and lit candles are not allowed at the booths. Participants are responsible for the set up, break down and cleaning up of the area. Participants are also asked to please make sure that all literature and handouts are age and event appropriate. There will be judging for the Best "Spooktacular" booth contest.

If you are unable to participate this year, please consider a prize or candy donation. Call 425-6009 and we will arrange to have your donation picked-up. If you have any questions, please call or email Amy Peebles at 425-6009 or amy.pee



For anyone who hates to exercise, Zumba will feel more like a Salsa party than a workout. Zumba has a fast, energetic workout that is fun and addictive. You get lost in the music and dance and don’t realize you’re getting such a great workout! This is a great remedy for anyone looking for a fat-burning pick-me-up with a positive energy blast that will leave you feeling happy and energized.

Zumba is not difficult and anyone can, and should, experience it. It’s a Latin-inspired cardio dance fitness class that incorporates many different dance styles and international music rhythms to provide one amazing high calorie burn workout. No dance skills are required to participate in the class. Our classes are created to apply for all fitness levels, whether you are just starting out in finding a healthier life-style or you are already extremely active.

Zumba targets the glutes, legs, arms and abs, all while burning calories through an interval workout of fast and slow movements.

Call for more information.
