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.
