Halloween help

Dear Editor,

On Halloween, Wednesday, Oct. 31 the Pittsford Recreation Department welcomed over 200 trick or treaters and their families to the annual Lothrop PTO Trunk or Treat. I would like to thank the Pittsford Fire Department Boo Mobile, Pittsford First Response, Pittsford Police Department and 300-plus VT Police Academy Cadets, Lothrop Principal Debbie Alexander, Recreation Director Randy Adams, Maclure librarian Shelly Williams and the many families that decorated trunks!

Lots of candy was donated by Gecha Fuels, Convenient Medical Care, Vermont Country Store, CVS, and Bar Harbor Bank & Trust. We look forward to seeing everyone next year!  Thank you to Stephen Belcher for the great photos!

Kelly Connaughton, Pittsford
