It’s a seasonal tradition that’s been going on for a quarter of a century — and on the afternoon of Sunday, October 9, the Visiting Nurses of NJ/ VNA Health Group marks the silver anniversary of its annual Halloween Fest fundraiser with a return to Scothigh Farm, the traditional host venue at 142 Bingham Avenue in Rumson.

Reservations close next Wednesday, October 5 for the “Costumes Welcome” event, which is presented by VNAHG Children’s Auxiliary — and which boasts a gamut of activities that include pumpkin picking,  a petting zoo, pony rides, clowns, live music, arts and crafts, magic show, and Spooky Maze, plus food and refreshments and more.

Proceeds from the October 9 event that runs from 1 to 4:30 p.m. will support the Children and Family Health Institute (CFHI) of VNA Health Group, which connects families to a broad array of health and education services that include comprehensive primary care for children; case management services for children with special needs and their families; home nursing care for acutely ill children, and a home visitation program that provides support to new mothers.

VNA reminds attendees that “your generosity will allow a needy family who is benefiting from VNA programs and services to attend and share in the magic of Halloween Fest at Scothigh.” Go here for information on registration, donations, and sponsorship opportunities.
