Halloween Events

October 2009

Dear Supporter,

It’s been a busy fall for me. I recently finished helping instruct our bi-annual firearms qualifications and now I am assisting with Police Academy Firearms Training, plus I will be facilitating a Team building day for our Emergency Response Team (SWAT Team). Add in a couple of vacation days and I have barely been at the Police Center. On Columbus Day we took a group of children out to release pheasants (I will post photos and maybe a blog when I can find the time).

The following events will be held this month. We are very much in need of help for these events. You may help by providing donations of: Pumpkins, candy, pumpkin carving kits, candles, decorations, food, drinks, cups, paper plates, napkins or a check to help us pay for supplies.
Pumpkin Picking - Monday, October 26, 4:30pm: We bring the kids to a field where they pick their own pumpkins. 200 pumpkins are needed for the pumpkin carving contest. Then we return to the Police Center to decorate for Halloween and enjoy snacks.

  • Pumpkin Carving Party- Tuesday, October 27, 5:00pm: We invite area families to the Police Center to carve pumpkins and enjoy a free harvest meal.

  • Halloween Safety Center -Saturday, October 31, sponsored by Neighborhood Watch, who provides the cider and cookies. The Police Center will be open and staffed from 4:30pm-9:00pm to inspect children's candy. Volunteers wear costumes and provide refreshments to kids and parents.

  • Haunted Hay Ride – date to be set depending on the amount of funds we receive.

If you are interested in helping or have any questions, please call me at (315)471-3257.
