National Fire Prevention Week observed in Canton
In honor of Fire Prevention Week, the Canton Volunteer Fire Department will hold two open houses for the public at the fire department on Park Place in Canton.
The first open house will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, and the second one will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday. There will be refreshments, fire safety handouts, and demonstrations at the fire prevention smoke trailer. This year, the theme is "Have 2 Ways Out!"
The National Fire Protection Association provided this information about the theme: "It is important to have a home fire escape plan that prepares your family to think fast and get out quickly when the smoke alarm sounds. What if your first escape route is blocked by smoke or flames? That's why having two ways out is such a key part of your plan. This year's theme, 'Have 2 Ways Out!,' focuses on the importance of fire escape planning and practice."
Trick-or-treat set in South Creek Township
Get your costumes ready.
Trick-or-treat will be held in South Creek Township from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 31.
At their last meeting, the township supervisors set the trick-or-treat time and date.
Also at the meeting, it was reported that the township secretary received information from Don Free, of PennDOT, that the township must advertise any roads that will not have winter maintenance.

In addition, supervisors donated $200 to the Bradford County Library.
