Buzz Lightyear (a.k.a. Juandiego) and Julissa Herrera, Community Support Coordinator for Weekend Recreation, join others in Halloween costumes.


Anyone who has been out in the community, shopping, is well aware that Halloween is almost here. Over the past week, the children, teens, and adults we serve got a head start on the festivities. We hope their fun and imaginative costumes—along with the themed activities in which they participated—offer our followers some ideas!



Festive Events in Morris, Sussex, and Warren

The adults weren’t the only ones to have fun. Children and teens from Morris, Sussex, and Warren counties enjoyed an evening of Halloween musical activities; many of them showing off their costumes.

After gentle yoga stretches and a lunch social break, the group returned to using stickers and patterned paper to assemble Halloween collages.

Meanwhile, the adults we serve in Passaic and Essex counties through our Weekend Recreation program had their day of fun, as well.

Down in South Jersey

Autumn and Halloween were themes among our young Parents’ Night Out—South participants. At Indian Acres Farm, Medford (LEFT), the pumpkins weren’t the only ones smiling! In addition, the annual Fall Harvest Party (RIGHT) was a time to savor seasonal treats.
