Westport Island Town Hall Goes Ghoulish
For the Community Association’s annual Halloween bash
In what is becoming one of the Community Associations’ best attended annual events, 75 or so Islanders and friends turned out for the Halloween bash on October 26. Laurie Jaramillo photographed the event which featured DJ Larry Weddleton, a costume contest, dancing and fun. When asked to sum it all up, Laurie said simply, “It was a blast!”
There were witches, pirates, robots, superheroes and mystery guests aplenty. Selectman Jerry Bodmer, Newt Blakesly, Brad Adler, and Dedee Greenleaf Hodgdon — along with Dedee’s good friend and guest judge, Bonnie Dore from Vermont — devoted careful thought to judging best costumes. There were both adult and junior class winners for: scariest, funniest, most original and best overall.
Best costume winners included — in the adult class: Dick Tucker, scariest (lion); Pat Smith, funniest (clown); Jill Cooney, most original (witch); Erin and Jessica Bailey, best overall (Maine tourists); and in the junior class: Danny Hopkins, scariest (wicked jester); Vivian McKinney, best overall (Storm from X-Men); Jacob Carver, funniest (pirate); and the mystery “button boy”, most original (spider).
