The staff at the Review won the annual Chamber of Commerce Halloween Costume Contest on Friday. Circuit Court Clerk Katherine Pack’s office came in second, while the crew at Dr. Starla Meigs office took third place. Chamber Director Suzanne Williams said she would like to thank all the businesses that participated in the contest. “We were pleasantly surprised to have over 20 participants in the competition, making it very tough for our judges,” Williams said. “All of the costumes were so creative and well-thought out. What a fun event for our downtown and community. We are so grateful to the City of Smithville staff and Smithville Police Department for the great job they do in organizing and sponsoring this well-attended family event. And many thanks to the DeKalb County Courthouse offices, Sheriff’s Department, Justin Potter Library, Smithville Review, and all the businesses/offices that participated. Everyone working together created a fun, social, and safe environment for our children,” the director concluded.
