In an age when we see protests calling for political action every day, a march on Thursday struck a decidedly different tone.
The fourth graders from Mrs. Hixon and Ms. Krivak's classes at Brook Park Memorial marched to city hall to demand longer trick-or-treat times.
It's part of a lesson on government, and Brook Park Mayor Tom Coyne was pleased to be a part of it. “This is a dynamic lesson for not only the kids, but for all of us," he said on the Brook Park News Facebook site. "When you want to make a difference and a change in your community, you need to get involved."
With 200 signatures, Mayor Coyne did indeed grant the request of the students. He extended trick-or-treating a half hour longer until 8:30 Tuesday night.
