5-7 p.m. Halloween Candy Inspection
Colon Community Fire and Rescue has teamed up with the Colon Township Library to once again host a candy inspection on the library’s lawn. Firefighters will be using metal detectors to check candy for metallic foreign objects. All foil-wrapped candy will be separated into a bag. The library is urging parents to check the foil-wrapped candies at home as the hand scanners will alert positive due to the foil.
“There was some problems with candy being possibly tampered with in town a few years ago, so we partnered with the fire department and the Fire Chief Matt Overhaul. A team of firefighters will be at the library and the school to screen candy,” Julie Censke, with the township library, said.
“The library should be a service to the community, so we wanted to make sure that our children are safe.”
