To the Editor:
The Richmond Police Department is well into the planning phase of the 2012 Trick or Treat Street event.
As in years past, it will be hosted by the department and will be held on Halloween evening in the city gymnasium.
This year’s event begins at 5 p.m. and will go until 8 or 8:30 p.m. – or until the candy runs out.
As usual, there will be free hot dogs and drinks. New this year is a haunted corn maze.
It’s all inside and safe in the gym at city hall.
Year after year, many area businesses have made this annual event an enjoyable experience for the children of Richmond.
The Richmond Police Department is hopeful that the 2012 Trick or Treat Street will delight the little ghosts and goblins once again.
But we’ll need your help. Donations, both candy and monetary, have been a little slow coming in this year and we want to make sure we don’t run out of treats for the kids.
To reach that goal, the police department is once again seeking sponsors for the annual event. Businesses and individuals may donate candy and or money to purchase candy to be distributed. Volunteers are also needed to hand out the candy at each “window” along our Trick or Treat Street. Volunteers may also be needed to assist with the Haunted House.
Donations may be taken to the Richmond City Hall and/or Richmond Police Department, 207 Summit St., on or before Oct. 25.
A list of volunteers will also need to be compiled by that date. Please feel free to direct questions or comments to Cpl. Jerry Folvarcik and/or Officer Amy Sisson.
You can reach us by phone at 816-776-3575.
