To the Editor:

The Mattapoisett Police Department would like to thank the business owners and members of the public who so generously donated to the Mattapoisett Police Halloween Fund. This long-standing tradition could not take place without the cooperation, participation and generosity of our community members.

The Halloween Parade has evolved over the past 70 years, beginning as a bicycle safety parade where children decorated the bicycles and competed in a bike rodeo. Mattapoisett Police Chief Alden Kinney organized the event and Chief Kinney’s family recently donated film of those early years to our department. The film has been converted to digital and is now available for your enjoyment on our Mattapoisett Police Department Facebook page and our website

Thank You for Your Support,

Chief Mary R. Lyons
