Parents are asked to make sure that your child can see clearly trough their masks and carry a flash light or have reflective tape on their costumes. Think safety first.
Be sure to examine all treats before you eat any of it.

During September, Althom Road was graded, patched and a sluice pipe was installed, according to the Deerfield Township supervisors.
Ditching and grading was done on McCauley Hill Road and Youngsville Road. Grading was also done on Hardy Road and McGee Run Road. Anti-skid was stockpiled and equipment maintenance was performed.
The filling of potholes was discussed. The township was unable to get the asphalt that was anticipated so some anti-skid was used, but it is not holding. Russell Standard will be contracted to see if it has any cold patch. If it doesn't, the road foreman will find some and work to take care of the roads quickly.
The subject of dust control options for 2012 was discussed. The option to apply MC70 to all township roads in 2012 and then maintain by alternating every other year was discussed.
The 2011 budget was reviewed with recommendations for the 2012 budget. At the next regular monthly meeting on Monday, Nov. 14, 2011, the budget will be reviewed and then advertised in the Warren Times Observer prior to the December meeting.
A special meeting will be held on Oct. 25 to open bids for the Fern Hollow Project and to discuss the Unemployment Trust Fund offered through PSATS.
