The past two years of Halloween haven't been easy for Marlboro Township residents. In 2011, an Oct. 29 surprise snowstorm moved the Halloween Parade and festivities indoors. And this year, in a almost laughable coincidence, an Oct. 29 hurricane canceled trick-or-treating all together.
But the township rallied, and on Nov. 18 residents gathered for a Trunk-or-Treat in the Recreation Center parking lot. And even Mayor Hornik couldn't let a good costume opportunity go to waste.
Hornik showed up to the event dressed as a JCP&L lineman, inarguably a relevant costume.
"I was going to put a target on my back, but I thought that may have been going too far," Hornik said.
