Halloween Ghost Patrol - Please Help!

Ghost Patrol Needs Volunteers


Every year we count on the fabulous ghost patrol volunteers to help keep our streets safe for kids and parents who are out after dark. Each Halloween we use 35 (or more) volunteers to safeguard Village Mill's streets. And we need your help to keep this tradition alive!!


Volunteers take 1-1/4 hour shifts (from 6pm-7:15pm or 7:15 pm-8:30pm). One volunteer is stationed for every 10-12 houses. They wear reflective vests, carry flashlights, and keep trick-or-treating safe and fun for everyone. At 8:15pm they let trick-or-treaters know the time so they can be home before Ghost Patrol retires for the night. Many families will be turning off their porch lights at 8:30pm, so please remind your children not to ring the doorbell if the lights are off.

We need lots of volunteers! If you're available on Thursday, October 31st, please call or email Tricia Casey at 770-395-1235 to volunteer for either shift. Happy Halloween!!
