Thinking on their feet, some Glen Rock moms have gotten together and planned a safe alternative to Halloween 2011.
After the borough for Sunday night and suggested kids stay safe and off the streets on Halloween, local resident Jayme Leigh Ritter suggested on the Glen Rock Patch Facebook page that there had to be another way to enjoy the holiday.
She's created a Facebook page for the event tentatively scheduled for Friday:
Due to the recent unexpected snow storm Glen Rock has closed schools on Oct.31 and urged parents to keep their children home due to down power lines all over town. Which means this years Halloween is a bust...or is it?!?!
This event has been created because Glen Rock Patch, Resident Parents and Myself have banned together to move the celebration of Halloween and Trick or Treating to Friday Nov. 4th.
Please spread the word via E-mail, Social Media, Telephone, Text message and even snail mail that Halloween is STILL on in Glen Rock and that it has only been postponed til Nov. 4th! Mother Nature wont keep us down!!!
Let's make this Halloween the best one yet!
(Please invite every Glen Rock Resident you know to RSVP to this event and encourage them to pass it around so we can get the word out!)
As of now, the event only has 10 folks marked as "Attending." So, like Ritter wrote, help spread the word!
