Local service groups create trick-or-treat events for local youth
Trick-or-treating was a bit of a mixed bag this year with the COVID-19 pandemic in full swing and public health entities leaving it up to individual families whether to chance the traditional door-to-door activities. With this uncertainty in the air, local service groups took it upon themselves to ensure local children were able to trick-or-treat safely and in costume without risking door-to-door exposure.
The Brussels Optimist Club gave out candy on Saturday at the Brussels, Morris and Grey Community Centre, while the Belgrave Kinsmen did the same at the Belgrave Community Centre. There was also a special trick-or-treat event at Huronlea Home for the Aged in Brussels with kids outside in their costumes bringing joy to the residents indoors, all while maintaining physical distancing protocols to ensure everyone’s safety.
