I am happy to announce that as planned from the result of Hurricane Sandy, I am designating Friday, November 16 to be Halloween in Stonington Day!
We are encouraging children to “trick-or-treat” in town and are asking residents and businesses to help us by participating. I will be joining other staff by dressing up to lead this fun tradition. We are looking to host the Como Kids at Town Hall, I will be visiting a couple schools, Teens to Tots Program, and we welcome any other “trick or treaters” who want to stop by the Stonington Town Hall open until 4 p.m. and/or the Department of Human Services open until 4:30 p.m.
Please leave your front light on to help “trick-or-treaters” find participating houses. As you know, to provide a safe, disruption free and enjoyable environment for our children, we encouraged children to “trick-or-treat” on this alternative date. We felt November 16 would be an enjoyable alternative date since on October 31 there were unsafe roads and no power as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
I want to personally thank you for your support during the storm and your help in keeping this festive tradition going in Stonington in 2012.
