Halloween: A Night for Treats, Not Tragedies

Blog Post by Tricia Tomson

Family time during Halloween was always a fun time for me growing up.

Partly because my Mom’s birthday is on Halloween – so we always celebrated in style! From haunted houses, to choosing our costumes (which were always handmade), to parties, to apple dumplings and cider, to trick-or-treating – the month of October has always been one of my favorites!

With all the Halloween activities planned tomorrow, we want to remind families to have fun while being safe!

Here are some tips for your trick-or-treaters:

  • Young children should always be accompanied by an adult
  • Always take a flashlight
  • Inspect candy and treats before consuming and throw out anything already opened
  • Consider participating in local trick-or-treating activities at area churches and fire stations – especially if you are not familiar with your neighborhood
  • Make sure your child’s costume is hazard free

Have a safe and

fun Halloween!
