Join us this Saturday for Half Moon Boo!

half-moon-booThis Halloween (Saturday, October 31) the Half Moon Bay Community Association will be handing out candy from 5pm to 6pm at the corner of River Mist and Cambrian.

Bring out your kids in their costumes to get some candy provided by our generous sponsors! The City of Ottawa has also provided some reflective snap bracelets for the trick or treaters.

The Half Moon Bay Neighbourhood Watch has arranged for the Kappa Sigma Fraternity brothers to patrol our area again. Make sure to say hi!

We'll also be handing out "All Valuables Removed" warning cards for your vehicles and money saving coupons for $5 off LED light bulbs to help light up the neighbourhood.

If you missed our Food Drive earlier this month, we will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Barrhaven Food Cupboard at this event as well.

See you on Halloween!

Rules for setting out items

  • Place items at the curb
  • Place stickers or signs on items with the word "FREE"
  • Ensure any items that you want to keep are away from your giveaway treasures or tucked away safely in your garage
  • At the end of the day, bring any uncollected items back to your home

Give Away Weekend etiquette

  • Respect other people's property, don't walk on people's lawns and gardens
  • Take only the treasures marked free at the curb
  • Don't discard previously picked-up treasures on another person's lawn

Please consider safety when deciding which items to set out to the curb.
The Consumer Product Safety Bureau of Health Canada advises that used children's items such as baby walkers, yo-yo balls, cribs, car seats, strollers, playpens, bath seats, mattresses, blinds, toys and other child-related items should not be placed at the curb for Giveaway Weekend.
