Penn Yan dentists will buy back Halloween candy

Gwen Chamberlain

On Tuesday, Nov. 1 the dentists at Eaves Family Dental Group will buy-back Halloween candy collected by trick-or-treaters at a rate of $1 per pound.

The resulting stash of candy will be shipped in care packages to U.S. soldiers stationed overseas. In 2010, the dental office collected more than 90 lbs. of treats.

“This is one of our favorite events,” said Dr. Edmund Eaves. “It’s a chance to promote oral hygiene in our community, and send a little piece of home to the deployed troops.”

Anyone interested in selling their candy this year is invited to stop by the Eaves Family Dental office at 660 Liberty St. in Penn Yan between 3 and 6 p.m. This event is open to the public.
