GROSSMONT COLLEGE–The “Modular Village People” and other staff, faculty and students got a head start on Halloween on Friday afternoon, Oct. 29, during a reception at Griffin Gate. 

Dressed in the costumes of the ‘Village People’–that is as a policeman, Indian chief, construction worker and cowboy — were Jeanette Irvin, Genie Montoya, Lani Dennis and Karen Bishop.

Candied apples and chocolate chip cookies made the get-together a sweet one, with such other costumed attendees as Laura Hernandez-Guiterrez dressed as Minnie Mouse, Anna Gonzalez as a Mardi Gras celebrant; Ann Ring as a doctor; and Patty Sparks as a football player.
