Hallowee-Ones is back!

jackolanternThis Halloween (Friday, October 31) the Half Moon Bay Community Association will be handing out peanut-free candy from 5pm to 6pm at the corner of River Mist and Cambrian.

Bring out your little ones 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.

Back this year are our friends from Rogers who will be deploying the Pumpkin Patrol to help keep us safe. Look for the Rogers vehicles around the community. The Half Moon Bay Neighbourhood Watch has also 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!
