Halloween in Brownton

She remembers her older brothers attending the Halloween party volunteers in Brownton put on for members of the community. Mark and Kevin Miller dressed as hobos for the Halloween fun.
Today, Nancy Sweely and her children will be among the 125 or so children and adults from the area who’ll stop by the Brownton Community Center for the Halloween party next Wednesday, Oct. 31, 5:30 to 7 p.m. Donations of $3 per child (with a $10 family maximum) go to the McLeod County Emergency Food Shelf. The donation will help the food shelf provide meals to needy families during the holidays. Girl Scout Troop 34204 will serve a meal for an additional fee.
For over 50 years, volunteers in Brownton and the area have put on the party for area children and families. It started with the Brownton Women’s Club. By the 1990s, the Brownton Lions, remaining women’s club members and other volunteers pitched in. Families and teenagers from the community help run the party. The teens who enjoyed the fun in elementary school winning prizes at games and collecting sweet treats are now working at the event.
