Trick or Treat Thank you!

Hear the siren?

See the dashing shiny red fire truck whizzing down the street?

We think, I am so sad, someone is in trouble, but there go the fire people rushing to the rescue.

They have so much courage.

We scramble to safety. They rush in.

See the police men and women, roaming around and around our neighborhoods, keeping their eagle eyes on our streets, helping to keep us safe?

We think, I am so lucky to be protected by these brave people.

Let’s give a Halloween Thank You to our Fire and/or Police…

1. First dump your Halloween stash on a table.

2. Pick out a few you like the very best. You went door to door and earned those sweets.

3. Then divide the rest into little piles to be distributed between the fire and police personnel.

4. Bag each in a little “Baggie.” Now for the very best part! Please be sure to add a little personal note and attach with some ribbon or yarn. They will LOVE that you took the time to express your appreciation for keeping you, your family, neighbors, and friends safe.

5. Don’t forget! Hand - Deliver.

It’s sooo easy and the goodness goes a long way. Have fun!
