Halloween treats, safety reminders

Let’s Celebrate With the convergence of a full moon, a blue moon, Daylight Savings Time and plus the unprecendented events of this  year.
Halloween 2020 will truly be one to remember. Much has changed but our love for fun, fright, is strong as ever. Celebrate in a safe, fun way.
Pledge to follow best practices: Do not hand out candy if you are sick or someone is sick. Wear a face mask covering your mouth and nose. Stay at a safe distance. Place a distribution table between yourself and the trick  or treaters. Distribute candy on a clean and disinfected table to elimate direct contact. Wash hands often.
