In recognition of the Smallwood Civic Association's first Halloween Trick or Treat Walk, local real estate company, Malek Properties, made a generous (and the first) contribution to the Civic Association's playground equipment fund.

SMALLWOOD -- Skies cleared on Saturday, making for a nice day for trick or treating. Luckily for local youth and their families, the Smallwood Civic Association held their first Halloween Trick or Treat Walk.
Costume creavitity was abundantly evident, and participants left with plenty of treats!
“This was a wonderful and much needed event. More families with children are living in Smallwood because we are all living, working, and attending school differently now. Many people arrived here in March and quite a few have never returned to the New York City area. The weather was perfect for a family celebration and walk around the lake.
The day was made even more special because we got such great cooperation with our Covid-19 protocols from all who participated,” said Smallwood Civic Association President Jonathan Hyman.
“On behalf of the Civic Association Board and our general membership, I offer a sincere thank you to Events Committee Co-chair Jose Nunez, our event volunteers, and our trick or treat table hosts,” he continued. “This event could not have been so smoothly executed without the support of Supervisor Dan Sturm, our Bethel Constables and the Smallwood/Mongaup Valley Fire Department, Fire Police.”
