Catwoman and Robin rode into the sunset after an eight-hour mission on Saturday, Oct. 23 to distribute 314 bags of candy to kids in a Halloween-themed adventure.
Melissa Clark of Hanson, a Plymouth County Deputy combined her love of cars and Halloween and used her cool Polaris Sling Shot three-wheeler ride to create a fun-filled day.
After the event blew up via Hanson’s social media Connect pages Clark decided they should organize a route so she could include as many families as possible. They also posed for photos but remained in the vehicle to keep socially distant for all involved.
They started the day at 10 a.m. in her Catwoman attire she rode with side kick Robin — whose alter-ego is her mom Michele Clark. The pair made deliveries of individual bags of candy (COVID regulations in place) to 49 different streets throughout Hanson, and Monponsett within the Halifax Twin Lakes.
They tossed the bags to children and families who were on a pre-scheduled route.
Clark, who calls herself a car enthusiast and drives a Camero, was exuberant to involve her Cat Mobile in the Halloween plans. When she purchased the Polaris Sling Shot in March 2019 it was originally white. The three-wheeled, open-air ride positively turns heads. She designed her custom wrap to emulate the Catmobile, which was special ordered from AMR Racing Las Vegas. It was installed by Anthony Crisafulli of Northeast Auto Spa in Pembroke.
Clark who grew up in Hanson, where her family still resides, and has a heart for her community. Her father Ron Clark is a long time veteran officer of the Plympton Police Department and is a fellow car enthusiast.
Following the day long adventure Clark said she felt completely “fulfilled.”
“There were no debates, arguments, stress or negativity as we have in the world right now,” she said. “It brought smiles. It was a great day.
“We even stopped at Mc Donald’s. We gave out candy there,” she said with a laugh.
There were lots of pictures posted throughout the day on local town pages. She was pleased at the positive comments she received from so many families; several messages that particularly touched her heart.
With no immediate planned upcoming events Catwoman will ride again … stay tuned. Meow!
