Al Donohue, head of Keller Williams Realty in Ridgewood, is doing what he can to at least keep Halloween going this week.
He sent the following to Patch on Thursday morning.
I know many of you reading this have much bigger problems right now than the cancelling of Halloween - and our thoughts and prayers are with you. That said, with all the turmoil and hardship brought on by the storm, cancelling Halloween just seems like piling-on to kids who have been cooped-up in the darkness for several days during this storm.
So, we are UN-CANCELLING Halloween.
Keller Williams will be hosting a Halloween Party with refreshments, prizes, and office-to-office trick-or-treating for any, and all, children who show up at our office on Friday (11/2) from 1pm to 5pm.
You do not need to be a Keller Williams employee or client to attend - nor do you need to be a Ridgewood resident. The only requirements are a desire to have some fun and a child with a costume. We will supply the rest. Our address is 257 E. Ridgewood Ave in Ridgewood. See you on Friday!
