Ronald McDonald House Charities

 

By donating needed supplies to the Ronald McDonald House you are supporting their mission to support families with a home-away-from-home while children need to be in the hospital for testing and treatment.

For more information about the donations they are in need of, please visit RMHTwinCities.org/ways-to-help#wishlist.

 

 

Join in the Fun on October 26th!

CALLING ALL FAMILIES:

Young Trick'or'Treaters can start at Osseo City Hall and then tour local businesses up and down "Main Street" (Central Avenue) between 11A and 12P to claim their Halloween treats. (No costumes are required, but we love to see the little ghosts and ghoulies.)

The festivities continue back at the Osseo Community Center with more fun and games until 2P. The Osseo Lions will be providing additional treats, games, and crafts.

This year we will be helping children create special cards for our Troops.

Come on out for Spooky Good time!


BUSINESS OWNERS:

There is no need to pre-register to participate, however there are a few things we would like you to know.

  1. To participate in the Trick'or'Treat parade we ask you are out in front of your stores, or have signage on your door to indicate your participation this year no later than 10am the day of the event.
  2. You will need to provide a treat to the children and NOT just your marketing materials. You are more than welcome to pass out branding along with your treats.
  3. If you have non-food related treats available to the children please use TEAL in your signage or a TEAL ribbon to indicate non-food related treats are available as this is a widely known indicator by those with dietary needs. Examples of these treats might include pencils, crayons, mini notepads, stickers, finger puppets, etc.
  4. If you are a local Osseo business wanting to participate but do not have a business on Central Avenue, please contact the City of Osseo to request temporary signage and spot to set up at Boerboom Park across from the city offices on Central so you can participate and greet the Trick'or'Treators there.

For more information you can contact OsseoHalloween@gmail.com.

      Hello Jessica. There is no pre-registration required this year for participation, however, you must be a business within the Osseo community to participate as it’s a community event. There are two ways you can participate if you own a business in the Osseo community: (1) Add your “Trick’or’Treat signage to your storefront on Central Avenue before the fun begins at 11AM — Use TEAL if you will be providing non-food related treats. You can include your branding with the treats, but you cannot just hand out your marketing stuff to the children and families participating. (2) If your business is not on right on Central Avenue you could bring your Trick’or’Treat temporary table out to Central Park in front of the Community Center from 11am to 12pm to participate. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
