Trick-or-treating on Halloween is a long standing tradition, and Family Services recognizes how important traditions are to families.  The Family Partnership Center is the host to many programs and agencies in the community that offer services to people in need.  However, this event recognizes that the building is not just a place for those in need of services, but a place that has a wealth of resources to offer our community and its members.  

The event will be held from 3pm to 5pm at the Family Partnership Center at 29 North Hamilton Street in Poughkeepsie.  The event will be held rain or shine.  In order to ensure the safety of all attendees, all children must be accompanied by an adult.  

For more information about the event, please contact Katherine Raynor at (845) 452-1110 ext. 3344.
