Skate Park Halloween Event from October 28th, 2016

On Friday evening, October 28th, 2016, at 5:00 p.m., the Lacey Township Police Department, along with the Lacey Township Recreation Department and the Municipal Alliance, presented this season’s final evening Skate Park Event in Gille Park.  Members from our local volunteer Emergency Services, to include the Lanoka Harbor and Forked River Fire Departments, and the Lanoka Harbor and Lacey Township EMS squads, were in attendance. The DJ began playing music at 6:00 p.m., and took a break at 7:45 p.m. to present our Skate Park Halloween Costume contest. The event concluded at 9:00 p.m.  There were several children in attendance with some amazing costumes who participated in the contest.  Although prizes were provided for first through sixth place, every child in attendance was a true winner.  The first through sixth place prizes were provided by the Lacey Township Recreation Department, the Lacey Township Municipal Alliance, and Tom and Dee’s Italian Ice. First place was a gift card from Game Stop, along with a free classroom Italian Ice party provided by Tom and Dee’s Italian Ice.

The evening skate park events began this past August 2016, and occurred every other Friday evening  throughout last night, weather depending. During every event, the lighting was provided by the Forked River Fire Department, the Lanoka Harbor Fire Department, and the Lacey Township Police Department. In addition, both the Lacey Township EMS and Lanoka Harbor EMS were on scene for the safety of all.

“The amount of parents and children in attendance at the skate park last evening was truly amazing. I was very happy to see the overwhelming response from our community.”

I would like to thank everyone who made these events happen, including, but not limited to, the Lacey Township Committee, the Recreation Department, the Municipal Alliance, and all of our Emergency Services personnel who volunteered their time. In addition, I would like to thank the DJ for his performances, and Tom and Dee’s Italian Ice for providing both Italian Ice and refreshments. Finally, I would like to thank the Lacey Township High School for their assistance with promoting the events.

This will be the last skate park evening event for the season. We anticipate on starting these events again this Spring. If anyone has any questions in regard to these events, please call the Lacey Township Recreation Department at 609-693-1100 ext. 2203
