Largest Lindsey Wilson 'Safe Halloween'
To be Held on Oct. 28
COLUMBIA, Ky. -- The largest residential student population in Lindsey Wilson College history is sure to be a boon for area children when it comes to collecting Halloween candy.
This year's LWC "Safe Halloween" will be held from 6-8 p.m. CT on Wednesday, Oct. 28, an annual event that gives the region's trick-or-treaters an opportunity to collect candy in the college's residence halls. 
Parents and guardians can bring children to the LWC Cralle Student Union Building lobby from 6-8 p.m. CT on Wednesday, Oct. 28. There is no cost to attend the event.
This is the 17th consecutive year LWC has held "Safe Halloween" for the region's children. The annual event usually attracts about 1,000 area children and their family members.
And this year, they will have more ground to cover -- as well as more sweets to collect.
With the opening of 186-bed Harold J. Smith Hall, children and their family members will have another four-story residence hall to canvas for candy. More than 1,100 students are living in LWC housing this school year, the most in the college's 107-year history.
"This should be the biggest 'Safe Halloween' in LWC history if for no other reason that we now have five residence halls that will participate in the event," said LWC Director of Residence Life Heather Davis, who is working on her seventh "Safe Halloween."
LWC students will lead children and their parents or guardians through residence halls, where residents will hand out candy. Past tours of the residence halls have taken about 40 minutes, but this year's could take up to an hour because of the addition of Smith Hall, David said.
All items distributed at "Safe Halloween" are individually wrapped, pre-packaged store-bought candy.
"The children and family members who are our guests for the evening always enjoy the event, but so do our students," Davis said. "Our students will have their floors decorated, and many of them will be in costume. It's become almost as popular with our students as it is for the children. It's just a very fun evening for the college and the community."
Lindsey Wilson College's 17th-annual "Safe Halloween" will be from 6-8 p.m. CT Wednesday, Oct. 28. For more information about "Safe Halloween," contact Heather Davis at davish@lindsey.edu or (270) 384-8375.
