10/21/13 – Several self-storage companies are getting in the spirit of Halloween. In Sterling, Colo., four self-storage operators are among the 80 businesses that contributed candy for this year’s "Trick or Treat Street” on Oct. 31, sponsored by the Sterling Recreation Center. Appelhans Self Storage, E B Maxi Storage, Master Storage and Mike's Storage LLC donated treats for the annual event, which takes place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the recreation center, 808 Elm St. The “Freaky Farms” themed event is intended to be a safe alternative to door-to-door trick or treating. The recreation center’s lifeguards will pass out free candy to costumed children ages 12 and under.
US1 A/C Self Storage in Boynton Beach, Fla., is sponsoring it own holiday festival from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 31, with a family barbecue including hot dogs, hamburgers, sodas and sweets. The self-storage operator regularly holds community events.
