Letter: Terror Trail a frightening success | Letters to the Editor

For the editor:

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Chief Michael Dwyer and West Newbury Police and Fire Services. Just in time for Halloween weekend, they provided security for our popular Maple Crest Terror Trail event, absorbing the cost of services into their budgets, allowing us to save significantly on expenses.

Terror Trail is an interactive performing arts piece presented at the historic Moulton Street Farm. This is part of our Arts and Agriculture initiative designed to use the arts to raise awareness about our local farms.

Sponsored in part by Newburyport Bank, this event, like all Pentucket Arts Foundation events, raises funds to benefit the arts in the Pentucket Tri-Town area. This was our second annual Terror Trail, and we are proud to announce that West Newbury First Responders have decided to partner with us in this way for two consecutive years. One officer even went so far as to donate his time!

The presence of West Newbury Police and Fire Services gives this unique and well-attended autumnal event an added assurance of safety. Their assistance included directing traffic, patrolling the trail, having emergency services on site, and putting up street parking signs. Moreover, they shared their considerable goodwill and kindness.

For 20 years, the all-volunteer, nonprofit Pentucket Arts Foundation has been dedicated to using the transformative power of the arts to help make our region a more vibrant and creative place in which to live, learn, work and be inspired. .

We are so grateful to our community partners like Police/Fire Chief Dwyer and his incredible team who have graciously embraced our mission and are always ready to help.

We can’t wait to see the community participate in our 20th Anniversary A Cappella Party on November 19 and our Holiday Maker Market on December 4! To learn more, visit www.pentucketarts.org
