Trick! or Treat?   as the old saying goes at Halloween. The Telespond group certainly received a wonderful treat as the Day Care visited our center and treated everyone to wonderful Halloween songs. They in return received a little Halloween candy in return. Everyone was dressed for the Halloween Holiday in their princess, fairy, and a few superheroes costumes.
