Clubs plan fall festivities

WED. | 11-8-23 | NEWS

     Rose has recently been participating in many Halloween events led by clubs. Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) took part in a trunk or treat event on Oct. 25 at Lake Forest Elementary School.

     Senior Carson Fraley has been a member of FBLA for all four years of high school. As co-president of the club, she delegates tasks to officers, makes sure any chapter events get submitted and does reports at states. 

     “My favorite part about FBLA is how big it is at Rose and just how many people you are able to meet,” Fraley said. 

     In past years, many other clubs such as National Honor Society, Dream Team,

Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) and Student Government Association (SGA) have helped contribute to trunk or treat. 

     The trunk or treat event has become an annual event at Rose, but was paused for a year due to Covid. It occurs after the school day from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. FBLA officers who volunteer will bring their cars and park in the back parking lot and decorate their cars for the kids. 

     “It is open to all FBLA members; they just have to sign up and officers are able to volunteer their cars,” Fraley said. 

     There is much preparation throughout the club for this upcoming event. These include credit opportunities for all club members.

     “Right now, we are collecting candy and we have four officers who are letting us use their cars, so we are also collecting decorations for those cars,” Fraley said. 

     The trunk or treat is meant to be beneficial in giving the kids an opportunity through their school to participate in a Halloween activity. Some of the students taking part in the trunk or treat do not have a neighborhood to trick or treat on Halloween, so this provides them with an alternative activity.

     “There is a fall festival inside and then the students are able to come outside and walk through the parking lot and get candy from FBLA and other club members,” Fraley said.  

     SGA had a Halloween Costume Drive through Oct. 2 through 13 to donate costumes for elementary schoolers. 

     “SGA was inspired by HOSA because they normally have a trunk or treat every year and so this year we were trying to find ways to get more kids to participate in it so we could donate more costumes for kids,” senior SGA officer Olivia West said.
