Watch for trick or treaters on Oct. 31. For those who do not want the cost or the effort of answering the door throughout the evening, UNICEF posters are for sale at the post office. They are $10 and all proceeds will be forwarded to UNICEF. A poster in your window will tell the children that you are not handing out treats.
