MAYETTA:  The Prairie Band Potawatomi Health Center’s Dental Office  is sponsoring a Halloween candy buyback next week after Halloween.  Children who bring in sealed-in-the-original-wrapper candy will receive $1 for every pound. Children will also be entered in to a drawing for a grand prize that will be announced at the end of the week.

Children who bring in their candy can also sign a thank you card or draw a picture along with the candy that will be sent to military troops overseas.

The buy back program is a national effort that began in 2006 and is conducted through dental clinics all over the country.  For more details on the program go to
