Partygoers on Gould Place, Caldwell, got an unexpected Halloween treat on Sunday, Oct. 31, when Sgt. Fred Arnold, Officer Paul Stabile and Officer Chris Butchik of the Caldwell Police Dept. dropped in at the Pucciarellos' home to speak to the children about safety and distribute "goodie bags" containing an activity book called "Know Your Local Law Enforcement Officer". According to Sgt. Arnold, the department was distributing several hundred goodie bags throughout Halloween day as part of "a little community policing" effort.
Scouting for Ways to Stop Bullying
The men and women in blue will also reach out to Girl and Boy Scouts this month to talk about ensuring another kind of safety–safety from bullying. Officers will speak to children in grades one through five, starting at Lincoln School, Caldwell, this Tuesday, Nov. 9, to educate students on how bullying is affecting children and young adults today. A much-covered topic in recent news reports, www.how-to-stop-bullying.com reports that one out of four kids is bullied today, and numbers are on the rise. Please support the local police department in this valuable endeavor. For more information on bullying statistics, tips to handle bullying and more, visit http://www.how-to-stop-bullying.com.
And More Sweet Treats
High school students helped make things a little sweeter last weekend when they baked and decorated more than 130 cupcakes, including a Halloween cake, an amazing Graveyard Cake, fun spider cookies, and some fabulously decorated Halloween sugar cookies, for the children at Strengthen Our Sisters Domestic Abuse Shelter and some of the residents of Crane's Mill.
The Teen Baking Mission Team at the Presbyterian Church of West Caldwell met on Saturday, Oct. 30, to bake and deliver the goodies. The children were excited for the fun treats, and the residents of Crane's Mill also enjoyed the sugar-free treats and visit. The team will meet again this month, on Saturday, Nov. 13, from 1 to 4 p.m., to make hearty fare for homeless people at a Soup Kitchen in West Orange. To sign up and join the team, contact the church at 973-226-5723. Permission slips are required.
