Cancellation of Halloween Carnival begs many questions

To the Editor:

I can’t begin to express how disappointed I am that there will be no Halloween Carnival at OCCC this year.

I also am disappointed that the email — letting us know that an event that has occurred for decades and made thousands of community children happy — did not explain why this community event will not take place this year.

It simply read: “Good afternoon, The decision has been made to cancel this year’s Halloween Carnival, originally scheduled for October 23rd. Attached you will find a list of alternative kid and family friendly events in the area for those seeking opportunities. Have a nice day, Student Life.”

Really? Surely we deserve a better explanation. Or, has it become the norm here to spoon feed us only the information you choose for us to have?
