Spooktacular Night at Lawrence High School (PHOTOS)


If there was such a thing as a Halloween Fairy, I would swear that s(he) had something to do with Lawrence Police Department’s “Trunk or Treat” event that was held Thursday night. Due to the evening’s rainy gloom, organizers moved ghostly inflatables, smoky bubbles, hot chocolate, and candy inside Lawrence High School’s (LHS) gym.

“I ain’t afraid of no ghosts”… Before entering the school, brave children were led onto a “haunted school bus” by a rather friendly looking Frankenstein. Though some left in tears, after coming face to face with ghoulish bus passengers, many went through again, giggling.

Inside the school gym, candy was given out to kids by the Lawrence Township Public School District (LTPS) Transportation and Dining Services, LHS Lacrosse team, representatives of Lawrence Township Police, Fire, Public Works, and Recreation Departments, Mayor David Maffei, Lawrence Emergency Medical Services, Lawrence Clerk’s Office, IXP Corporation (911 dispatch), Volvo of Princeton, Girl Scouts, Scoops ‘n’ Swirls, LuLaRo, Lightbridge Academy, Lawrence Township Education Foundation, and many township residents.

Angela Jacobs is a freelance writer who lives in Hopewell Township with her teenaged children and partner of 20 years. Despite her best efforts to simplify her life, last year she added four chickens and a second rescue dog to her pet menagerie. Unfortunately, an interim of peaceful coexistence ended with the untimely demise of two of the chickens at the paws of Jax, the new dog. An egregious lack of impulse control has since been diagnosed resulting in an indefinite separation of Jax from all present and future chickens, her two cockatiels, open garbage cans, snacks open on tables, abandoned stuffed animals, etc. She does however gently encourage him toward a certain industrious squirrel that has spelunked its way through her backyard in search of the most perfect hiding spot for its nuts.
