As always, residents may choose to participate by keeping the front door light on at their residence. Likewise, parents should decide if they will allow their children to participate in any Halloween activities in the community.
Regardless of how you choose to celebrate Halloween it is important to keep health and safety top of mind - this includes social distancing, face coverings and hand washing.
