An update from the Sandwich Recreation Dept.
Hi All, in keeping with the spirit of the Board’s approach to otherwise annually scheduled activities throughout this unusual year, the Board of Selectmen agreed to forego endorsement and participation in Halloween this year. The Board thoughtfully considered adaptations to normal activities – with input from public safety, resident, and state/local perspectives – and ultimately agreed community members are safer participating in home activities. We also encourage families to not travel to other communities for trick-or-treating. Some ideas to consider include: decorating your home, scavenger hunts, pumpkin carving, and scary movies.
To support the spirit of the day Sandwich Parks and Recreation will host a Freaky Fashion Show on our Facebook page. Please email photos of costumes and decorations to email@example.com or tag our Facebook page: “Sandwich NH Parks & Recreation” – we will be posting emailed photos to our Facebook page.
We WILL be hosting an adapted version of our Pumpkin Wall event. On or after Wednesday 10/28 folks can place a carved Jack O’Lantern on the wall at Remick Park or on the wall in town above the tennis court.
The Sandwich Parks and Recreation will also provide “BOO BAGS” (paper bags filled with candy) for families to create a scavenger hunt at home, or simply indulge 😊. The Parks and Recreation Department will accept Candy Donations for the BOO BAGS, but we will not be delivering candy to homes as we have in past years. We acknowledge that some families may trick-or-treat, and have provided guidelines below. Please understand we are well aware of the difficulty of these times.
Candy donations for BOO BAGS can be dropped off on starting Tuesday 10/20 at the Parks and Recreation office. There will be a Tupperware bin for contact-less drop-off. BOO BAGS will be available for pickup on Friday 10/30.
*Please let us know if you have allergies prior to 10/30 BOO BAG pickup.
