Yates, the Director of the Hudson Recreation Department made opening remarks. Selectmen Chairmen Shawn Jasper and Harry Schibanoff both spoke of what a wonderful addition the playground is to the Benson Project. The playground would not have been feasible without the effort of all the volunteers who worked on the
project and the assistance and expertise that the Hudson Highway Department added to the project.

9 Ways to Make Halloween Safer
Halloween is more enjoyable when safety is part of the holiday. Halloween is a time for people young and old to enjoy a little
mischief and mayhem. To make the holiday even more enjoyable, revelers can heed a few tips to make Halloween as safe as it is fun. 1. Use face paints instead of masks that obscure vision. 2. Wear reflective tape on darker costumes or when trick-or-treat- ing at night.
3. LED lights or glow sticks are a safer alternative to lit candles. Some lights even flicker to offer the appeal of candles. 4. Trick-or-treat in a group and never alone. 5. Take a planned route and don’t wander off the path. 6. Be sure costumes are not tripping hazards. 7. Costumes on young children should be age-appropriate and free of hazards, such as strings that can strangle or small parts that can choke. 8. Stick to trick-or-treating in trusted neighborhoods. 9. Be extra-cautious of cars when walking at night.
