Keep Pickens Beautiful sets record year for Kids and Candy!!

Al Rothe, KPB Board member reported a banner year for handing out candy on Halloween this year. Again this year KPB took part in the Trick or Treat downtown event in Jasper. Rothe reported that we had more children this year than ever before. Each year KPB purchases more candy and always seems to run out. This year we had 4 pieces of candy left at the end of the event. The costumes were great and everyone had a fun time.
