A whole slew of little ghosts and goblins had a frightfully spooktacular time at the Mermaid City's Fourth Annual Trunk or Treat event.

It was a Norfolk Community Safety Event held as a safe way for children to get candy and enjoy the festive activities, blue lights, fire trucks and ladders, and plenty of wrapped candy!

Our staff joined the Norfolk Police and Fire Departments to welcome thousands of kids (not to mention a lot of adults) in costume for a safe trick or treat. Officers hosted the event - the largest of its type in the city - in the parking lot at the Target on N. Military Highway.

This event gives citizens, businesses, city organizations, law enforcement and first responders a chance to get together, share in some holiday fun and interact in a positive environment.

LEC banquet attendees
Some of our department's LEC (Life Enrichment Center) volunteers recently attended the organization's Fall Banquet. They represent the group of 20+ NSO volunteers who participate as tutors and mentors to help children become confident readers.

The LEC banquet in October gives the organization a chance to express appreciation to its volunteers and supporters who join the event and to hear an inspiring message that keeps us focused on the mission. It affords friends and guests with a wonderful opportunity to learn more about LEC and the children served. It’s a joyful time as they highlight accomplishments, recognize our Partner of the Year and look ahead at opportunities to expand programs.
