By Ken Stanford Reporter
SUWANEE - On Friday, Nov. 1, the day after Halloween, trick-or-treaters will be challenged by Suwanee dentist Dr. Bill Williams to give excess candy back at $1 per pound.<br /> <br /> This year's Halloween challenge is part of an annual "anti-decay" initiative called the "Halloween Candy Buy Back Program" in which participating dentists take unused candy off the streets across the country, but use that same candy to put smiles on the faces of kids in Iraq and Afghanistan. <br /> <br /> Dr. Williams is associated with Suwanee Dental Care.<br /> <br /> Click on the link below for more details on the program.
