A long standing tradition with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office was recently resurrected by Sheriff's Office Volunteer Liz Quigg by handing out treats Halloween night to children from our community. The goodies are donated by local charities, businesses and civic groups of our community. Through this program, the goal is to illustrate to our youth that local law enforcement are friends who are here to help and not someone to be feared. This year, as with the past 4 years, hundreds of children and their parents are expected to trick or treat the Sheriff's Office. As in the past, we are partnering with Columbia County Fire District Number 3, who will be on hand as well with fire trucks and an ambulance for the kids to tour, also providing hot dogs to feed the hungry little ghouls and goblins! Come join the fun with us on Halloween night! We'll be out in front of the Courthouse between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
