This is perhaps scheduled to be the busiest Halloween day on record! It probably helps that the 31st falls on a Friday this year, but regardless the reason for the heightened festivities, events will be happening all over Wayne County.
Along with all the regular Wayne County trick or treat schedules, in Cambridge City there will be a Halloween party at the “Stage Door” with games, snacks, face painting and more — from 8 p.m to midnight. Cost is 3.00 in costumes or 5.00/person without a costume. (this is a hint to wear a costume)
Also in Cambridge City there will be a Trunk or Treat at the Cambridge City Christian Church, from 6-8 p.m. on Church and Foote Street. Prizes, treats, candy and more will be the safe alternative for kids at this site.
Centerville Elementary will be home to the annual Lions Club Halloween party in the gym with games, prizes and more, during trick or treat hours on Friday, October 31.
In Richmond, the annual Halloween Cancer walk will be taking place with sign up at 6:00 p.m. at the American Legion Post 65. The walk starts at 7:00 and is 10.00 per walker. All proceeds will go towards Cancer aid and research.
There are other trunk or treat events at area churches in Richmond, including the Presbyterian Church on A Street, during trick or treat hours. (if you have an event to share, please comment below).
Please watch out for the little ghouls as they cross streets
Add reflective tape to your kids costumes
Check all candy before letting your child dive in
Have kids stay on sidewalks whenever possible
If you are giving out non-food treats, please post a sign so families know that their kids with allergies can also enjoy a treat
Only go to houses with a front porch light on
Make sure an adult or older child is with young children
Make sure kids have a clear view of the ground from their mask/costume
Have a safe & Happy Halloween!

Moving Sale…Bon Voyage!
So one of the nicer things about having a family-run website is that we get to post things like this.
I’ve written for the site for about four years now and have posted over 600 blog posts and have never thought of promoting something personal. But I just remembered–we can do that.
We’d like to ask you all to support our wonderful niece and great niece in their long awaited dream which is now a reality–moving to California. Kaitlin is graduating from the radiology program at Reid this week and in just a couple of weeks will be heading for California.
We are so proud of all her hard work and dedication towards her education and her plans to move. She must have been born a “California girl” because after her first visit there –it was in her blood. And then meeting her fiancé was a bonus. We do have a lot to offer here in Wayne County, but for those like Kaitlin who long for the ocean and sun–it’s a great fit.
This Sunday is a big Moving Sale to help them along their way and to lighten their load (they are packing all they need in a car). So if you want some great deals on furniture, clothes, books, lamps, just about anything–you won’t want to miss this sale!
And you’ll be helping with a great adventure that has been a long time in coming for Kaitlin and Ella (and Christopher). The sale is at 3585 Pleasant View Rd, this Sunday from 1-3 p.m.(also the address of Yellow Kitty Hair Salon–another family plug). We hope to see you there from 1-3 p.m. and make sure you congratulate our girl on a job well done!
