Every year, the Historical Society of OG celebrates the roles of women in our town including the Temperance League, the Suffragettes, and women in business.  But now, the local feminists can rejoice in the arrival of the Witches Coven which convened on Halloween night over on What-The-Heck-Avenue.  We don’t know what they were drinking  (true blood perhaps or  witches’ brew) but they were having a wild time.

We asked them, “What kinds of witches are you?”  They just cackled loudly and raucously in response.   They amused themselves by finding new names for Blogfinger, such as “Coldfinger” as they sang my theme song  and they threatened to “do bad things” to me.

There were over ten witches present, maybe 13, all dressed in black except for one in white  who was a good witch, or so she said, but the twinkle in her eyes said something else.  It shows that you can’t tell a witch by its color.  They also revealed a remarkable ability to all talk at once, laugh out-loud, and mug for the camera.

After midnight they are flying out on their brooms—-to Amazon.com, the home of the Amazon women.

And, in case these witches engage in forbidden nights, here’s Darlene Love:

Jean says, “Where have all the pumpkins gone? Halloween decorations are sparse in Ocean Grove.
I came upon this Jack o Lantern glowing in a window, and was happy to see him.”

Stephen says, after carousing in Bradley Beach with Pooja, “They have a lot more Halloween decorations than the Grove.”

THE FEELING.  Maybe she doesn’t call because she flew away with the witches.

Halloween, which had been postponed due to troublesome weather, will be held this Wednesday in Firemen’s Park on Main Avenue.

It won’t be kiddies going door-to-door, though, and it won’t last long, only from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

It’s called “Trunk or Treat,” which means parents should bring their children — infants through grade 5 — and their cars to Firemen’s Park, to receive their traditional Halloween treats.

“We’ll fill up your trunks,” Mayor Randy Bishop’s announcement said. “We have candy and treats due to generous donations from Walmart and FoodBank.”

Bishop asked the various residents’ associations in Neptune Township to find safe, well-lit locations for the event and to run it for the Township. In Ocean Grove, the Home Owners Association will be in charge. “We have to go and pick up the food, set up the cars around Firemen’s Park and wait for the kids to come,” said Ann Horan, the HOA’s president. She’s looking forward to seeing kids in costumes.

In other parts of Neptune, similar Trunk or Treat events will be held at Ridge Avenue Park between 9th and 10th Avenues, the Gables School parking lot, the Midtown Commons parking lot, the Shark River Elementary School parking lot, the Green Grove School parking lot and at Winding Ridge.

The Township had called off the original Halloween festivities due to hazards and difficulties related to Hurricane Sandy.
