Downtown volunteers sought for Halloween

From Staff Reports

The Downtown Organization of Retailers is on a witch hunt.

They’re searching for businesses and volunteers to set up tables in Downtown Waynesboro for the annual Trick or Treat on Liberty Street, which will be held 3-6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 31.

According to DOOR co-chair Amy Lively, participants can give out candy or plan a Halloween craft or activity, like the haunted hayrides that are being coordinated by the Downtown Development Authority.

The event, which is in its fourth year, attracted more than 200 trick-or-treaters in 2010 and is expected to be even larger this year since it kicks off just before citywide trick-or-treating, which begins at 5 p.m.

Organizers say the event itself will be larger too, extending down East Sixth Street to Joiner- Anderson- Saxon- Prescott Funeral Home. While the state highways will not be shut down, the Waynesboro Police Department will be assisting children at all of the crosswalks.

Anyone interested in setting up a trick-or-treat station is asked to call Amy Lively or Nan Lynch at 706-554-8100.
