Halloween Event Flyer

Household members should trick-or-treat together, and they should maintain 6-feet social distance from other trick-or-treaters at all times. Mixed household trick-or-treaters are discouraged. Candy collected during trick-or-treating should not be consumed until after handwashing. As always, a parent/guardian should check all candy to make sure it is wrapped and should discard unwrapped candy. We will have a timed entry schedule to pace each household every 7 minutes, 1 free full-color photo per household each additional picture will be $1.00.

Be well, be safe and in a world where you can be anything…. Be kind!
