Tampa Triple T?s.

A costume contest, games and pumpkin carving were all part of the Tampa Triple T?s 4-H Club Halloween Party Oct. 31. Seventeen members, three leaders, six parents and five guests met at the Tampa Senior Center for the annual party.

The winners of the costume contest were: ?Spookiest,? Tyler Bentz as the Unknown Phantom; ?Nicest,? Reanna Brown as Dorothy from the ?Wizard of Oz;? ?Funniest,? Micky Law as a frog; and ?People?s Choice,? Robert Spohn as Scooby Doo.
