Trick-or-treating in your HOA community should be safe and fun for everyone. Here are some Halloween safety tips to help keep the youngest members of your community safe:
- Post flyers around the community and/or send emails out prior to Halloween informing residents to be mindful of trick-or-treaters. Encourage motorists to drive with extra caution on Halloween evening.
- Do a walk-thru or a drive-thru of your community and check for any potential hazards. If you notice a hazard, place cones or warning signs in these areas to encourage alertness. It is also a good idea to point out potential blind spots.
- Suggest that homes participating in Halloween, leave their lights on, while those who do not wish to participate, leave them off. Instruct families to only knock on doors that have their lights on.
Suggestions for homeowners:
- Make sure your own yard is free of any debris or other objects such as broken lawn equipment (or furniture) so that no one trips. Keep the front door area well lit, too.
- Tell your children to walk, don’t run. You should also advise them to use sidewalks and avoid the streets when possible. Stress the importance of watching for cars!
- Keep a flashlight with you while trick-or-treating. It is also a good idea to have a reflective article of clothing or to use a reflective candy bag.

The smell of candy is in the air again! It’s time for Best Roofing’s 2nd Annual Trunk or Treat event to benefit The Pantry of Broward on Saturday, October 18th from 4-7 pm at Best Roofing.
Last year (Year One!) was quite a success! They served over 15,000 pieces of candy to over 200 children. We ran out of snow cone cups, popped 100 lbs of popcorn, and gave away 250 pumpkins to children to decorate. And perhaps most importantly the event raised in food donations and cash close to $10,000 for The Pantry of Broward.
|Best Roofing’s First Annual Trunk or Treat
Last year, Trunk or Treat was visited by over 200 families and we are expanding to accommodate larger numbers this year. Best Roofing’s Second Annual Trunk or Treat will have much more than free candy and decorated trunks.
Once again they will be providing free kids activities such as a bounce house, pumpkin patch, free concessions and much more.
Ghouls, goblins and ghosts
of all ages will enjoy this fun activity, so come out and join us for some freaky fun.
This year’s “spooktacular” highlights include:
Prizes for the best-decorated trunks
NEW THIS YEAR! Jake’s Halloween Costume Drive!
For our trunk or treat partners,
The Pantry of Broward and HOPE South Florida, Halloween costumes do not make the list of essentials in the budget. Therefore, Best Roofing is helping to offset costume costs by collecting new and gently used costumes. All costumes must be delivered to Best Roofing no later than Friday, October 10th.
WHEN: Saturday, October 18th
WHERE: Best Roofing, 1600 NE 12 Terrace, Fort Lauderdale 33305
