I would like to remind the public that the 8th annual Trick-or-Treat night will he held Friday night October 30th at the Brown County Sheriffs Office located at 709 Utah Street in Hiawatha.
This year the staff will be dressed up as characters from the movie “Despicable Me.” We will be looking forward to a visit from all of the trick-or-treaters and we will provide goodies bags filled with safety information, pencils, glow sticks, stickers and more.
I would also like to remind those driving to be extra careful as many children will be out for this event.
We would also like to encourage all kids to have a safe and happy Halloween
and follow some of these basic safety rules:
1. STAY IN WELL LIGHTED AREAS
2. ALWAYS TRICK-OR-TREAT WITH FRIENDS OR FAMILY
3. DO NOT ENTER A STRANGE HOME OR VEHICLE
4. WEAR LIGHT COLORED COSTUME OR ADD REFLECTIVE TAPE TO DARKER COSTUMES
–MAKE SURE YOU CAN SEE WELL OUT OF YOUR MASK/COSTUME
5. TAKE A FLASHLIGHT WITH YOU
6. MAKE SURE AN ADULT CHECKS YOUR TREATS BEFORE EATING THEM
7. ONLY TRICK-OR-TREAT AT HOMES WITH A PORCH LIGHT ON
8. LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE CROSSING THE STREET
9. YOUNGER CHILDREN SHOULD BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT
