It was a night of sweets and shrieks in Middletown on Trick-or-Treat Night on Thursday, Oct. 30.
Pine Street was crowded with costumed revelers who ran the gauntlet of evil clowns, spooky mannequins, a chainsaw-toting killer – even the king of the jack-o-lanterns, perched on his throne.
The Prince Edwin-Spring Creek Lodge of the Free and Accepted Masons on West Emaus Street hosted a
Halloween party where kids munched free hot dogs while they inventoried their candy cache.
At the American Legion Post 594, student-chaperones from the Lower Swatara Twp. police advisorycommittee’s Witch Watch program ate pizza after a night of keeping a watchful eye on children.
See who was there!

Here’s who was on the scene at the latest fish fry – at the table and in the kitchen!

Standing on the track around the football field on Steelton’s Cottage Hill, Alison Mohn embraces a family friend, Mitchell, rubbing his head. “That’s how Ryan’s hair felt,” Alison says, a pang of pain in her voice.
It’s been almost 10 years since her son, Ryan Lee Mohn, the star quarterback on Steelton-Highspire’s football team, died from injuries he sustained in a car accident, but as the months and years pass, the reminders never fade away.
Some friends and family close to him have inked their remembrances on themselves – tattoos of his jersey numbers, angel wings and crosses. And a number of strangers have a reminder, too, a piece of Ryan that they literally carry with them.
