Bexley Encourages Residents to Participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project

Encouraging Inclusion of All Trick-or-Treaters This Halloween

Every child should be able to experience the joy and tradition of trick-or-treating on Halloween. But kids with food allergies are often left out of the fun, since most candy is off limits.  The Teal Pumpkin Project, coordinated by the Food Allergy Research & Education organization (FARE), helps make sure all children will come home on Halloween night with something they can enjoy. It just takes one simple act: offering non-food treats, such as glow sticks or small toys, as an alternative to candy.  Last year, households from all 50 states and 14 countries participated. This is a worldwide movement to create a safer, happier Halloween for all trick-or-treaters.

How to Take Part:

  • Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters.
  • Place a teal pumpkin in front of your home to indicate to passersby that you have non-food treats available.
  • Display a free printable sign (click here to download) to explain the meaning of your teal pumpkin.  We have some printed at City Hall you can pick up too!

Learn more about the effort at the Teal Pumpkin Project website.

P.S. Trick-or-Treat in Bexley will be observed on Monday, October 31st, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.


Bexley's Hands Free Ordinance Takes Effect October 14th

Hands-on use of mobile devices restricted

At Tuesday night's City Council meeting, council voted to approve Ordinance 27-16, prohibitting the hands-on use of mobile communication devices while driving.  Under the new law, drivers must either use hands-free devices to make and receive calls (such as bluetooth in-car and after-market calling systems), or pull out of the flow of traffic to make or receive calls.  The law is very similar to laws in place in 14 states and many cities in the Cleveland region.  Signage will be installed at all entry-points to the City, and a public information campaign and a warning period will preceed enforcement.
