Trick or Treat 2019
 

Campton Hills Halloween Safety Tips

Campton Hills children and parents are encouraged to trick-or-treat in their neighborhoods between the Village’s recommended Halloween hours of 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31.

The Campton Hills Police Department recognizes that Halloween is an enjoyable day for children, but parents should be aware of the potential risks that can affect children who are not supervised properly. Trick-or-treaters should always travel in groups and have adult supervision to ensure that the only scary experiences children have are those associated with the spirit of Halloween. It is especially important for parents to adhere to a few safety rules for their children when they are trick-or-treating.

  • Young children should be accompanied by their parents or another responsible adult.

  • If there is a chance that children will be out after dark, at least one member of each group should carry a flashlight.

  • Remind children to watch for traffic.

  • Walk only on sidewalks and cross the streets at intersections.

  • Wear light-colored clothing or some type of reflective material for better visibility.

  • Ensure costumes fit and are worn in a manner that prevents tripping.

  • Trick-or-treat in groups.

  • Do not go inside anyone’s home. Remain on the porch at all times.

  • Only give wrapped candy.

  • Examine all candy before allowing children to eat it.

The Campton Hills Police Department also reminds motorists to drive with an abundance of caution and travel at a reduced speed in residential areas during trick-or-treating hours. Many children and adults will be walking through residential areas, and depending on the availability of sidewalks, may be near or on the roadway. Also, be aware of children inadvertently darting across the street in the path of vehicles.

Pumpkin Composting Drop-off

Saturday, November 2nd

9 am - 12 pm

Location: Pushing the Envelope Farm, 1700 Averill Road, Geneva, IL 60134

Don't Let Your Waste Haunt You!

Why compost pumpkins?

  • They are 90% water and are full of nutrients that are good for the soil
  • Support a local farm by providing these nutrients for their gardens
  • Most of the pumpkins processed in the US are grown in Illinois - keep the water and nutrients here!
  • Food scraps and organic materials in landfills are the 3rd largest producers of methane, a potent greenhouse gas contributing to climate change
Sponsors
 

Pumpkins only

  • NO candles 
  • NO yarn hair
  • NO stickers
  • NO googly eyes
  • NO plastic ears
In other words, only the pumpkins themselves can be composted!
