The Karate Quest Dojo, with locations in Warwick and Port Jervis, recently hosted its annual costume party for junior students and guests in both training halls. The parties attracted more than 70 costumed martial arts students. In addition, the party-goers played games related to fun and karate, participated in a costume contest and broke a pinata filled with candy. Dojo owner Glenn Finke made the price of admission a canned food item to be donated to local food pantries; more than 125 cans were collected. Finke and his family will match the donation, which means more than 250 canned food items will be donated locally. For more information log onto www.karatequestdojo.com or call 845-988-9223.
