Dorothy Peacock Elementary students made their annual Halloween visit to Chartwell Langley Gardens

Chartwell Langley Gardens was invaded by zombies, ghosts, princesses, and unicorns on Thursday morning, and the senior citizens who reside there were all smiles.

The residents were charmed by a visit from students in Grades 1 to 3 at Dorothy Peacock Elementary.

Jim Tonn and Doug Pettet sat in the foyer as the dozens of costumed students pored into the Walnut Grove seniors residence.

“We’re here to look after your candy,” Tonn said.

“If it gets too heavy for you, we’ll look after it,” Pettet added.

The school has brought over students in the past for a Halloween visit and many were surprised to find several seniors in costume as well.
