“Halloween Window Painting at Rankins”
Artist: James Geddes

Many of us were fortunate enough to have participated in  
window painting In Auburn. Or had fun walking the
streets of Auburn to see all the Halloween art by kids
from the Auburn area. St. Joseph, Alta Vista, Auburn El.
, EV Cain and more participated. Thanks to the Lions Club
who hosted this event for many many years. Not only did they
promote the window painting but they also hosted an
annual parade for kids! I believe this started in 1946 when
the parade began at the State Theater. After 1946 the
parade stated at the Freeman Hotel and ended at the Placer High
auditorium. The Placer High marching band played in front
of all the kids. I can remember taking that walk with hundreds
of kids in full costume! We all marched up on stage at the
high school auditorium and showed off our costumes. I was nervous
standing on the stage with the entire town there. What great memories!!!

Rankins had some of the most popular widows to paint on.
Most of us buddied up with others but not always. It was
great fun painting on the Bon Ami windows. Nancy remembers
getting her paint in milk cartons saved from the cafeteria.
I remember Mrs. Chastain who was always so excited about
helping all the kids! She loved how all the kids were doing
art for fun!
