LAKE COMO, NJ — Toddlers in Lake Como’s “Mommy and Me” play group got a chance to try out their Halloween trick-or-treating skills this morning at Lake Como Borough Hall.

During their weekly get-together, they proceeded in costume to the borough offices — with treat bags and buckets in hand — where they knocked on doors and peered into office cubicles to be greeted with smiles and plenty of goodies.

In addition to Lake Como’s office staffers Louise Mekosh, Amy Boney, Viveca Graham, Patty Fagan and Esther Kiss, Public Works Superintendent Brendan Maas also joined in the festivities. And visiting from Belmar, Police Sgt. Todd Lee was decked out in his uniform and costume horse head, hoping to get some giggles from the group.

Belmar Police Sgt. Todd Lee got some giggles when he was decked out in his costume horse head, which he then ditched for a bucket of Halloween treats.

“Mommy and Me” is a casual group of children up to 3 years old who bring their moms — or anyone who cares for them — to enjoy some fun and games for several hours each Wednesday morning. They meet in the council chambers at Lake Como Borough Hall, which is transformed into place for fun, games and a host of activities for several hours.

Organized several years ago by Borough Councilwoman Hawley Scull, the group is open to residents and nonresidents, who keep in contact by Facebook and meet the entire year. It also has several “bonus” activities and field trips throughout the year.
