This will be a DRIVE THRU, COVID-Conscious event so there will not be any kids walking trunk to trunk for candy. We are asking that all candy you would purchase be turned in to the Gerrish Twp. Police Department or the Gerrish Twp. Hall by 10/26/2020 so that it can be pre-packaged in a sterile environment. At the end of the drive thru each child will receive one large bag of candy.

We are trying to still host this traditional Halloween community event but need your help! Please consider registering and decorating your vehicle, we normally have between 45-50 vehicles participate under normal circumstances and at the time of this posting we only have a handful of vehicles pre-registered.

ACT NOW & Gerrish Police Road Clean-Up Completed

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were not able to complete our Spring Road Clean-Up, however we were able to pick up the trash on both sides of County Road 100 from the top of Pioneer Hill to Hillsdale Drive last Tuesday.

16 volunteers, including 4 Gerrish Officers participated and 15 trash bags were collected. Pizza and pop/water was provided afterwards for the volunteers by ACT NOW.

Thank you to everyone who helped out with this bi-annual event to keep our community clean! See you next Spring for our next clean-up.
