Well Treated

Nov 15, 2017

To the Editor:

On behalf of the Surf City Police Department and the Surf City Volunteer Fire Co., we wanted to thank all of the people who made Surf City’s third annual Trunk or Treat event a huge success. 

First, we’d like to thank all of the businesses, community groups and families that sponsored this event. Without their generosity, this event, which is funded entirely by donations, would not be possible. 

Our 2017 event sponsors included Surf City Marina, PBA 175, Surf City Pizza, Lou’s Electric, Surf City Taxpayer Association, Woodies of LBI, Coldwell Banker Riviera Realty, Surf City Bait & Tackle, Tuckerton Lumber Co., Volpe Construction, Meridian Medical Group, Panzone’s Pizza, Surf City Yacht Club, Bay Avenue Plant Co., Northside Bar & Grille, Sand Dollar Real Estate, Scojo’s, Sandbox Café, How You Brewin?, LBI Chamber of Commerce, Surf City Business Cooperative,  Southern Ocean Chamber of Commerce, Typestries, the Ambroziak family, the Roe family, the Collins family, the Costabile family, the Gross family, the Switaj family, Alan Kane, Surf City Borough Hall employees, Sweet Haven Candy Shop, the Big Dipper, Scoop City Ice Cream, and Grannie Annie’s Ice Cream Café.

Second, we’d like to thank all of the emergency personnel, businesses, community groups and local families who dedicated their time to host a trunk at the event. We are excited to report that we had 34 trunks for the kids to trick or treat at, which was a fantastic turnout. Additionally, the creativity exhibited by our trunk participants exceeded our expectations, and we were floored by their awesome designs. 

Our 2017 event participants included all LBI police departments, Ocean County Sheriff’s Department, Surf City Fire & EMS, Barnegat Light Volunteer Fire Co., Barnegat Light First Aid Squad, Beach Haven First Aid Squad, Stafford Township EMS, Barnegat First Aid Squad, Surf City Yacht Club, Surf City Marina, Sandbox Café, Coldwell Banker Riviera Realty, Lou’s Electric, Tuckerton Lumber Co., Panzone’s Pizza, Shore Fire Grille, Southern Ocean Chamber of Commerce, Sand Dollar Real Estate, Meridian Physician Group, How You Brewin?, Dr. Paul and Stephanie Chung, the McDowell family, the Tillman family, the Leidemer family, the Hibberd family, the Collins family, and the Roe family.

Last but not least, we’d like to thank all of the guests who attended. Each year, our event has grown larger, and the support/positive feedback we receive from everyone means the world to us. We genuinely enjoy hosting the event and are glad we can provide a safe, fun-filled night for the community. We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
