Happy Halloween From Rochester, New York

On October 25th, CARD’s Fairport office got a spooky makeover… The Ghouls and Gobblins came over to our office for our Halloween party around 6, and trick or treated their way around the office!

Trick-Or-Treat!

Halloween is around the corner! One of my favorite Halloween activities is practice trick-or-treat. This can be as simple or elaborate as you like. All you really need is a door, a bag and a treat, but it might be fun to incorporate dress-up clothes or have a Halloween dress rehearsal.
