The last week of October is filled with fun and reflection, not to mention plenty of items you should know about. Let’s take a look.
For the first time since 2010, Halloween looks like it will actually happen on Oct. 31 this year. After a nor’easter and a super storm in 2011 and 2012, respectively, trick-or-treating in the township was moved to later dates.
We’ll be reflecting on the aforementioned Super Storm Sandy this week, a year after the incredible disaster devastated Washington Township, knocking out power for some residents for up to 15 days.
Also on Halloween the Long Valley Girl Scouts will be setting up shop at the Long Valley Green Market to collect donations for the Washington Township Food Pantry. Feel free to swing by between 3 and 7 p.m. to drop off your items.
Don’t forget to weigh in on our question of the week, where we ask readers to let us how they’ll be voting on the special question in this year’s General Election. The question is asking if the state’s minimum wage should be increased by $1 per hour.
Have a great week, Washington Township!
