Hundreds turn out for Florida Clinic Halloween Fest

FL Halloween 2012Now in its fourth year, the Florida Clinic’s Halloween event continues to attract more local children and families each year. Held on Halloween, this year’s event saw more than 350 people come through the doors of the Port Orange Clinic. Students and staff decorate the clinic, wear costumes and hand out candy to children who tour the spooky clinic halls and mods for treats and good natured tricks. 

“I’ve always felt that it’s a great way for people in the community to get to know us and see our facility," said a smiling Al Luce, D.C., Dean of Clinics. "It also serves as a way for the students, staff and clinicians to have fun working together, decorating their mods and greeting the public. I’d also like to thank the City of Port Orange for their cooperation. They loaned us some of the larger decorations from one of their events and helped us get the word out to the community.”

The event, which is open to the public, is also an opportunity for students, staff and their children to get together and get to know each other in a casual, fun setting. 

“This is the first time I’ve ever been inside this building," said Bill from Port Orange, "and I’ve lived here most of my life. It seems like a very friendly place.”
