A number of people have asked me about Halloween. The Selectboard Meeting Minutes said:
“Halloween: When Mrs. Pschirrer talks with the Keene Sentinel reporter tomorrow about Halloween in the Town of Walpole, the Selectboard agreed to have her state that they will encourage families to stay together; will recommend the hours to be 4:00-to-7:00 PM; wear a mask, stay in your neighborhood; keep the recommended distancing, distribute only wrapped candy. Please stay safe!“
For what it’s worth, at my house I am putting out a bowl of candy and will have the light on until it isn’t gone. Our neighborhood may not have Trick or Treator’s in residence, but I don’t want to disappoint those who come here because they live in an area without a neighborhood! At the same time, it is hard to pass out candy while maintaining a social distance. Again – stay safe!
