Have a Howling and safe Halloween
Halloween is just around the corner with hundreds of local children and teens trick or treating or attending a community party all dressed up as witches, monsters or their favorite characters or my favorite, a newspaper reporter.
Several local groups will most likely conduct Halloween parties at several locations that are safe and great events that should be considered especially for younger children.
Those that decide to hit the streets should make absolutely sure they are accompanied by another person (s).
Have a Howling Halloween.
