The Barge Canal Optimist Club will host the 2012 Happy House at the Lockport Family

YMCA. This is the 18th year the Barge Canal Optimists Club has sponsored the Happy House for preschoolers and those young at heart.

The event is a non frightening program offered during the spooky, Halloween season.

“Young children are often too frightened by the ghosts and goblins to participate in Halloween events,” said Laurie Ferris, YMCA Youth Director. “The Happy house is not a scary event. The Happy House is full of hands on activities where the young children may visit Pooh Bear’s corner, play a life size game of Candy Land, bowling, ring toss and even enjoy a story.”

Members from the Barge Canal Optimists Club dressed in friendly costumes and will greet the children, help them enjoy their visit and be sure each child is given a goodie bag when they leave.

The Happy House will be offered from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 27 and from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.

Although adults will be admitted free of charge when accompanied by a young child, there is a small fee charged for each child attending. All proceeds from the Happy House will benefit the YMCA Youth Department.

Stop by for treats. No haunting here.
