Letters to the Editor

Not so scary after all, thanks to you | Letters

As a resident of “Halloween Central” here in town, I would like to thank the community for the support they offer to our hard hit neighborhoods come Halloween night.

The supplemental candy is appreciated. Four to five hundred children knocking at the door is not an exaggeration.

This year, as every year, the children and young adults of our island were polite, funny, creative with their costumes, and thoughtful towards the wee ones. Many were accompanied by helpful parents and family. The happiness in the air was palpable.

Thanks too, to our neighbors, especially Richard Pederson, for spending time and dollars to create spooky Halloween fun for our kids. It was a special night, and, I think, a special “island night” reflecting our community’s values and personifying this unique place we all call home.
