Hello to everyone! I hope you had a great week. For this is the day the Lord has made, be happy and enjoy it. Well, another month is on its way out, ending with fall celebrations like Halloween and Harvest Day. These are fun times for children, who can dress up in costumes, enjoy parties and eat yummy treats. These celebrations also provide a chance to give out healthy snacks, and focus on safety.
The city of Henderson wants every child, teenager, young adult and adult to be safe. Try to avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters, or if you are unable to do that, wear a mask. Wash your hands before passing out candy. Do not let children walk unaccompanied. Check candy for any tampering or choking hazards. Eat only store bought and wrapped treats. Walk with a flashlight and/or put reflective tape on your bags or costumes to be easily visible. Only visit houses that are well-lit. Keep to sidewalks or the far edge of the road (facing traffic) when walking and keep an eye out for pedistrians if driving. Be safe and have fun!
On Oct. 28, the place to be is Gene Record Park for Trails & Treats! Mark Barber and the committee of the Park want to offer a safe, fun event for families in the community. Candy will be given out, and all activities will be during daylight hours from 2-4 p.m. Bring the whole family and enjoy the fun! I will see you there. Let’s have FUN and ENJOY!
The city of Henderson is very proud to have HUNT’S Tennessee BBQ here in Chester County! The Ribbon Cutting will be at 11:45 a.m. Friday, Oct. 27. Congratulations!
