Halloween Costume Party for kids Set At First United Church

FULTON, NY – On October 25, starting at 7 p.m., a Halloween Costume Party for kids will be hosted by First United Church of Fulton, 33 S. Third St.

This is an annual old-fashioned party that includes group games, a costume parade with prizes and great refreshments.

The party is free and open to children in the community.

Please contact the church office to indicate in advance that your children are attending (592-2707- leave a message).

Also, on October 20, starting at 2 p.m., First United Church of Fulton will show a recent release that tells the story of one African American’s heroic struggle in crossing from Negro League play to start in 1947 with the Brooklyn Dodgers.

His personal story reflects the racism of the American culture, in the north and in the south, of the time.

He is spiked by base runners and beaned by pitchers.

His journey into the world of Major League Baseball turns out to be very costly and complex for him in many ways.

Copyright restrictions do not allow First United to publicize the title of the movie or the names of the leading characters.

There is no charge.

Popcorn and soda are provided, as well.

First United Church is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches, USA and the Presbyterian Church (USA).

The congregation is active in the greater Fulton community through the Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian
Churches and other avenues of sharing.

The facility offers hearing assistance, and it is accessible to those who are physically handicapped.

Sunday worship takes place each week at 11a.m.
