Safe Trick or Treat Night Scheduled for Wednesday

Posted on October 23, 2012 by


Have you ever attended the Fleetwood Safe Trick or Treat night at the high school?

Then why not?

Every year for the past seven years, while math teacher Cynthia Steele has been advising the Relay for Life Club, which hosts the  trick or treat night for Fleetwood students and members of the community.

“I first decided to be part of this team after Ms. [Jennifer] Goss decided to no longer advise the group about seven years ago,” Steele said.  “Fleetwood has had this tradition for a long time, even before I started advising the group.”

The turnout for Safe Trick or Treat night changes every year.

“In the past, we have had about 100 participants, including students, families, and other relatives,” Steele said.

This year Steele is expecting a better turnout because she has had many people asking when and where the Safe Trick or Treat is taking place.

Since so many people show up to trick or treat, Steele needs a lot of student helpers. She usually has about 26-28 volunteers.

For some of the activities at the event, the club charges money to participate. Any money raised at the Safe Trick or Treat goes towards the American Cancer Society. Fleetwood’s Relay for Life team receives credit for the donation.

Some activities in the past have included cookie decorating, face painting, balloon shapes, pumpkin painting, and a haunted house.

This year if you are looking for a fun activity to attend on 24 October, 2012, from  6:00 to 8:00 p.m., stop by the Fleetwood Area High School and participate in the Safe Trick or Treat Night.
