Halloween and Teens

Original post made by Nancy Brown, Evergreen Park, on Oct 24, 2011

It is Halloween again and a great time of year to bring neighborhoods together! Last week the Project Safety speaker, Clay Roberts, suggested that 78% of our teens believe that adults and communities do not value them - but we can do something about that!

Everyone of us can welcome teenage trick-or-treaters, encourage youth to do a scavenger hunt or volunteer to help at one of the areas little people trick-or-treat (Stanford Mall, California Ave.). If we involve our teens they will know we care!

Years ago the Palo Alto Bowl did a special costume Halloween night for teens. Of course that can't happen any more. :(

Is the Winter Lodge doing a special costume event?

They can come by our place and hang out with the aliens who crashed on our roof on Vernon Terrace! :0)

Teens can have so much fun at Halloween and should be encouraged by people - to stay kids - dress up and- volunteer to help at shopping areas that encourage younger people to trick-or-treat, helping at crosswalks, doing scavenger hunts instead of trick-or-treating, reverse trick-or-treating - taking candy to shut ins or old folks in neighborhood, collecting canned goods for a local food bank ....... You are never too old to enjoy Halloween!
