With a half-dozen two-by-four Lego bricks, a child literally has millions of different creations at his or her fingertips. A school today can become a rocket ship tomorrow.



Do you want to get more out of Halloween? On Thursday, Oct. 30, from 1 to 7 p.m., costumed children can pay $1 each to trick-or-treat at Mall-O-Ween at Shoppingtown Mall (3649 Erie Blvd. E., DeWitt). Dozens of vendors fill the mall, passing out candy, stickers and other fun items. The event benefits the Children’s Consortium. For information, call 427-8454 or visit


For the rest of October’s events, see the calendar!
