Basically, contact is made with as many businesses, government agencies, church groups, and other organizations as possible and arrange for them to set up a booth and hand out candy. The event is held on the municipal grounds in Sherman (across from Bearcat Stadium). This is a free event.

"TREATS FOR TROOPS"
Tuesday, November 1st

It's that time of year again and Lake Texoma Dental Care is having their second annual Treats for Troops. Dr. McAnaney is redefining the phrase "put your money where your mouth is". This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Lake Texoma dental Care in Denison, Texas and receive $1 per pound. Dr. Stephen McAnaney is leading this anti-decay and troop supporting movement by giving away dollars and electric glowing toothbrushes in exchange for cavity-provoking candy.

Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now earn money for their piggy banks. All candy, non-perishable items and donations will be shipped to Operation Gratitude to be distributed to our troops. Our service men and women greatly appreciate all the support they get from the boys and girls back home in the states and they use the candy to generate good will in the communities where they are serving. If you want to know more information about the project, visit the website at www.halloweencandybuyback.com or www.operationgratitude.com.

Candy will be collected at Lake Texoma Dental care on Tuesday, November 1st from 4:00 - 7:00pm. The candy must be unopened. Please no bites. The candy, perishable items and donations will then be shipped to Operation Gratitude.

Halloween Candy Buy-Back
at All About Smiles Dentistry, 724 N. Washington in Durant
Wednesday, Nov. 2nd, 3 - 6 pm.

We will pay $1.00 per pound for all UNOPENED Halloween candy. The candy then will be sent to Operation Gratitude who will put it in care -packages for our American soldiers oversees. It is completely a non-profit event that we are hosting that we thought would be a wonderful way to get the kids involved by advocating dental health in getting rid of excess candy and helping them be part of a charitable event. We will be giving away free toothbrushes and incentive coupons for kids from local restaurants. This year we are also giving away a new bike to the child who brings in the most candy!
