Trick or treat night in Salisbury Township is 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 27.
The South Mall is also having a trick or treat event 3 to 5 p.m. Oct. 28. If you are like me and live near the Emmaus border, their trick or treat night is 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31. I don’t get many trick or treaters where I live, so if I get a few from Emmaus, I give them some candy if I have it.
Homecoming is right around the corner. If you are a Salisbury grad, why not come out to your old stomping grounds and support the football team? Who knows, you might run into some old classmates. The game starts 7 p.m. Oct. 13 versus Northern Lehigh. Actually, come out a little early, line the streets around the high school and watch the annual Homecoming parade. Go Falcons!
Keeping with Homecoming tradition, Salisbury High School will host the Homecoming dance 7 p.m. Oct. 14.

The breakfast is free but a reservation is required by Nov. 6 at www.salisburysd.org/breakfast. Sounds yummy!
The Salisbury Athletic Department will collect items at the football game Sept. 15 to ship to families in need due to the hurricanes in Texas and Florida. Just a few items on the list include clothes of all sizes, pet food, gift cards to restaurants, diapers, bedding and Home Depot gift cards. Any monetary donations will be used to buy Home Depot gift cards. Come out, enjoy the game and be a blessing to those in the path of those terrible storms.
By the time you are reading this, the first day of school will be over and your hands are probably hurting from filling out all those first week of school forms. Your high school and middle schoolers are happily tapping away on their new laptops and telling you which teachers they like and those they do not. If they are not on a laptop, it might be because you have not filled out the Agreement for Laptop Use (version A) and sent it in with a $50 check. Aaahh, the joys of the first week of school.
Can you believe that the first day of school is almost here?
