OCT. 26 – What should be done with expired or unused prescription drugs?
It’s not wise to leave them lying around.
“You don’t want to become an accidental drug dealer,” said Capt. Terry Hosea of the Savannah Police Department.
The Savannah Police Department provides a prescription medicine drop-off box for the public. The drop-off box, which is similar to a mailbox but even sturdier, is in the lobby of the Savannah Police Department, 80 King St., open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
As part of National Prescription Take Back Day, the department’s lobby will also be open for drug drop-offs on Saturday, Oct. 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
OCT. 23 – Now in its 12th year, the Haunted Shed for kids is under new leadership. Original organizer George Bryant passed the skeleton key, so to speak, to Halloween enthusiasts Amanda and Jeff Butler of Savannah.
“I’m getting older and it’s a lot of work to get everything set up each year,” said Bryant, 73. “Amanda and Jeff have helped me with the event in the past.”
Haunted Shed is free and open every night through Tuesday, Oct. 31, from dark until 9 p.m. at 535 Phelps Road, Savannah. Signs indicate parking in an adjacent field.
The Halloween event includes a trail through the yard to view spooky inflatables and a trip through the shed with its separate rooms of scariness. Beware of spiders and skeletons.
