Operation Safe Halloween - West Charlotte Village

OPERATION SAFE HALLOWEEN is for the Children of Charlotte (and neighboring communities).   Halloween is traditionally a big night for the West Charlotte Village.  In order to make this event happen this year, we asking people to donate time, candy and/or money.  We have created a number of socially-distant stations in the Village - at the Charlotte Senior Center, Old Brick Store, and Charlotte Children's Center - along with several houses along Ferry and Greenbush Roads that will be providing tricks-and-treats. 

The Charlotte Library is also hosting A Pumpkin Parade on the Village Green on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night with (hopefully) hundreds of pumpkins lighting up the Town. 

We understand that many people are concerned about the safety* of trick-or-treating this year, and we are asking everyone to take the necessary precautions - wear a mask, keep groups small, and stay 6' apart.  We expect that the crowds will be smaller, and many people will opt out this year. But for some families, especially families new to the community, trick-or-treating could provide some sense of normalcy in a crazy and uncertain time. 

How can you help:

Candy/Treat donations can be dropped at 279 Ferry Rd in cooler in front of the house.

Or donate money! Funds will be used to purchase treats which will be distributed at the various socially-distanced stations in the Village. 

*Dr. Levine of the Vermont Commission of Health says that as long as existing health precautions are followed, Vermonters can likely still look forward to Halloween. That will mean wearing a face mask (over your mouth and nose!), staying 6 feet apart, and keeping groups small. Like many things happening in the pandemic, it will look different — treats might be left outside on a table, for example, he said. But the holiday can be possible by being safe and thinking creatively. And a safe Halloween doesn’t have to be a scary prospect.
