As our Citizen's Academy comes to a close, Sarah Harris made these phenomenal cupcakes for the class! Great work, Sarah.

From our partners at the Chelan-Douglas Health District and the CDC. Winter is now obviously much closer with our bit of snow, so it is time to be thinking of cold and flu season. En Espanol: ¿Cuándo fue la última vez que se lavó las manos profundamente y desinfectó su hogar u oficina? Bueno, puede terminar en una limpieza profunda después de enterarse de que la vacuna contra la gripe no lo protegerá contra los Virus de Parainfluenza Humana (HPIVs o Para-Flu). Existen diferentes tipos de virus HPIVs que causan enfermedades respiratorias y cualquiera puede infectarse. Los virus HPIVs generalmente se contagian a través de actos comunes, como saludar de mano a una persona infectada, atravez de toser o estornudar, o tocarse la boca, la nariz o los ojos después de tocar una superficie u objeto infectado. Por lo tanto, limpie, lávese las manos y aprenda más sobre los virus HPIV aquí: https://www.cdc.gov/parainfluenza/index.html #HPIVs #CDC #CDHD

NIGHT IN A BOX Homelessness is not a nameless, faceless tragedy in our community. Many times it involves not only adults but children who have fallen on hard times. Misfortune could fall upon any of us and set our path in a direction we never planned. On November 17, Chief Crown will spend a Night in a Box to raise awareness of the plight of the homeless in our community. The event will occur in the parking lot of Encouraging Words, 529 S. Wenatchee Avenue beginning at 6:00 PM and runs through 9:00 AM the following morning.

DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDING That time of year is almost upon us once again. Daylight saving time (DST) ends November 5th at 2:00 a.m., so unless you are up and about at that hour you need to set your clocks back or "fall back" one hour before you go to bed Saturday night.

It was certainly a Happy Halloween and a great turn out last night for Trick or Treat on the Avenue. However it did take a joint effort and between Chief Steve Crown, Sheriff Brian Burnett and a local visiting Sergeant to keep things under control. Our Professional Staff were on the Avenue greeting the kids and handing out candy - thank you for all of your hard work! Stephanie Carden submitted a photo of her son Matthew visiting with "Sergeant Hilde". Officer Valencia is checking out one of the most notorious of the Sons of Anarchy. His smile was definitely killer.

Captain Reinfeld and his two hooligan dogs at Trick or Treat on the Ave today. If you have a picture you are willing to share of this great event, please send it to us as a message and we will build a gallery! Thanks to everyone who came down today to share in the fun! We handed out many bags of candy, 300 badge stickers, and more than 1200 reflective sticker kits.

Trick or Treat on the Ave is underway! Come see Reserve Officer Baltera for a sticker! We are here until 5 PM with the Parks Department carnival in the convention center until 7 PM.

BOO! Happy Halloween! We hope to see you today at Trick or Treat on the Avenue for a SPOOKTACULAR time. #TrickorTreattheAvenue #HappyHalloween #HalloweenSafety

Trick or Treat on the Avenue is only four days away! Come join the Wenatchee Downtown Association as they host Wenatchee Police Department, Chelan County Sheriff's Office, Chelan County PUD, City of Wenatchee, Waste Management, Chelan County Fire District 1, Ballard Ambulance, and Lifeline Ambulance in the street for kids to see and touch vehicles belonging to the above agencies. Don't forget there are 32 businesses who will be in the business of handing out treats as well! We hope to see you from 3-5 PM on Wenatchee Avenue between Orondo and Second Streets for this safe, fun, daylight Halloween event. If the kids aren't too worn out, there is a Halloween Carnival in the Wenatchee Convention Center from 3-7 PM as well.

Remember to slow down in construction zones to allow safe working conditions! #giveemabrake
