Friends of Princeton will be partnering w/the PES and Park & Recreation Committee to sponsor a new event this month.  Treats on Wheels was selected for a name last fall as an idea had been suggested to try handing out candy in one area.  So, on Sat., Oct. 31st part of Depot St will be blocked off to provide a fun, safe activity for the area children.  People who will be participating in the event are asked to come line up with others between 4:00-4:30 p.m.  The area will be blocked off at 4:30 so children can go freely between the cars, take part in the haunted house at the town office conference room and enjoy a glass of apple juice provided by Friends while listening to spooky music.  If anyone has carved pumpkins, please bring them to put on display. Wear costumes, decorate your trunks or area where you will hand out treats if you wish.  Hoping people will join in the fun for the children.
