Halloween has been celebrated on October 31st in the United States since the early 1800’s and is traditionally a family-oriented holiday when children get to dress up and enjoy candy and other treats. In order to assist the Abingdon community in enjoying this fun-filled holiday as safely as possible, the Abingdon Police Department has compiled Halloween safety tips for children and their parents. Each day this week, the APD will post safety tips on facebook as the countdown to Halloween is just few days away.

Keep Costumes both Creative and Safe:
-Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and choose light colors.
-Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision.
-Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.
-When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.

Halloween Safety Tips

Walk Safely

-Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
-Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. Constantly look for oncoming cars and low flying brooms!
-Put electronic devices away and keep your head up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
-Make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
-Walk, crawl, slither and sneak on sidewalks or paths, not in streets.
-If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible.
-Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.
-Watch for cars that are turning or backing up.
-Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.

From the field to the jar. A BIG thanks to all the members who made this possible. It was a hot October day for the first batch and windy and very cold for the second one. We had lots of laughs and fellowship while we did some hard work and it was worth it. Thanks to all who came by to see the process. Our organization appreciates all who purchased the end product- the sorghum syrup (molasses).
