FAIRFAX, Va. - Witch Watch is an annual event where members of the Masons Student Government and Student-Athletes, chaperone students around the Fairfax Community, to monitor the safety of local "trick-or-treaters." However, this year George Mason Student Government brought the "trick-or-treaters" on campus. They allowed different organizations to get involved by giving them a table near the dorms where they could do arts & crafts with the kids along with handing them candy. This year our Dance team was able to participate and set up a table with various arts & crafts to do with the children.
The Masonettes, volunteered at the Witch Watch during the day on Halloween. They had a table that the "trick-or-treaters" could come to and at our table we had an activity. The children could decorate a foam pumpkin, bat, or skull and cross bone by coloring them or writing something on them. After they did their craft, candy was handed out along with a Halloween silly band and a spider ring and then they were off to their next table. Witch Watch is a great way for kids to trick or treat during the day in a small and safe environment. The Masonettes had a lot of fun talking to the children and doing the crafts with them. Overall, it was a very successful event.
