Young shelter residents trick-or-treat at Becker College

Published on Monday, October 30th, 2006

Thanks to the efforts of the Elm Park – Lincoln Estate Neighborhood Association, 35 young residents of Friendly House shelters on Elm and Cottage Streets in Worcester will go on a chaperoned trick-or-treat on Tuesday, October 31, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

The trip begins at 5:00 p.m. with a haunted house at Dynamy, 27 Sever Street and continues to Becker College residence halls and the homes of participating neighbors, covering Cedar, William, Roxbury and Dayton Streets.

“These families are our neighbors while they are at the shelter,” said Bob Bourassa, president of the new Elm Park – Lincoln Estate Neighborhood Association. Bourassa enlisted the help of Becker student government president Andrew Rassla to coordinate the residence hall stops.
