Halloween in Glenelm

As of this writing, it looks like trick-or-treating on Halloween night can happen, while following the provincial and federal public health guidelines, of course. Some key tips from those guidelines:

  • wear a mask (for both giving out candy and trick-or-treating)
  • stay home if you’re not feeling well
  • wash/sanitize hands frequently
  • give/receive store-bought treats with tongs and from a safe distance 
  • trick-or-treat with your own household
  • take turns going up to each house; give the group ahead of you plenty of space so that you’re not crossing paths in close quarters

If you decide that trick-or-treating is right for your family, please be sure to follow the guidelines for a safe and fun evening!! 

Oct 31: Treats from GeNA & The Big Red Church

For the big night, GeNA is teaming up with our community partners at the Big Red Church to distribute treat bags from their yard.

On Oct 31, be sure to swing by from 6:30 to 8pm to pick up a treat!

Social distancing will be observed, so please move along quickly to prevent congregating in groups!

Nov 1: 2020 Pumpkin Parade

The live version of this year’s Pumpkin Parade is cancelled due to COVID-19. Instead, we invite you to participate in a virtual parade by:

  • Showcasing your spooky decorations and terrifying pumpkin carving skills on the GeNA Facebook page, or  
  • Sending in photos to glenelmcommunity@gmail.com (or just reply to this email).

We’ll take your photos and turn them into a slide show to be displayed on the GeNA website!

Since the neighbourhood might be too busy on All Hallows’ Eve for some folks to comfortably to enjoy everyone’s decorations, we encourage community members to light up again on November 1st for the benefit of neighbours who’d prefer to participate in a scaled-down celebration with a socially-distant stroll through Glenelm. 

Wishing you all a safe and happy Halloween!
