Pennsauken’s Historic Houses Remember in November

By Bob Fisher-Hughes, Pennsauken Historical Society

The harvest done, the feed gathered in, the firewood stacked, and the cool air of November sweeping the farm, our colonial forebears’ lives assumed a different pace. Celebration of the successful completion of a year’s work and family life, and thoughts and plans for the year to ensue, then had their season. The same could be said of generations that followed, until our modern lives at last evolved away from the cycles of the land and its seasons. At Griffith Morgan House and Burrough-Dover House, we look back and celebrate the rhythms by which our ancestors lived, even as we wind down the year of history here in our 125-year-old township.

Trick Or Treating In Pennsauken 2017

Tomorrow is Halloween! And kids in our community are gearing up for a day of costumes, spooky fun, and treats. To keep Pennsauken’s boys and ghouls safe this Halloween, the Township has an ordinance in place.

Pennsauken has a curfew in place not just on Oct. 31, but this evening as well. During this period, any minor under the age of 16, regardless of where they live, are not allowed out on the streets of Pennsauken after the hour of 8:00 p.m. unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Your buddy who just turned 18 isn’t going to cut it. It has to be an adult who’s legally responsible for you.

Trick or treating is for kids, not adults. It’s unlawful for anyone over the age of 14 to go out trick or treating, unless you’re acting as a chaperone. And unfortunately, chaperones can’t ask for any candy or treats. They have to wait until they get home to help their kids “sort” the candy. Trick or treating on Oct. 31 runs from 4:30 to 8:00 p.m.
