Candy will come flying

Posted

Harry Olsen, who had 95 years old hasn’t slowed down and won’t left a pandemic interrupt Halloween, went to work to convert his front door at 71 Grandview Drive into the COVID-safe candy dispenser. First he replaced the glass in his storm door with Lexan, not because it is bullet proof, but because it wouldn’t crack like Plexiglas. He cut a hole in the clear Lexan and affixed a clear plastic tube so that the treats he has stockpiled in sealed plastic bags would end up in the “candy landing” or the bags of his visitors. Captain Harry’s Candy Chute will also feature a clown’s face on the railing to his front steps. Its nose will be rigged to his doorbell so when it’s pressed he’ll be there to man the chute. Asked what inspired him to build the chute, Harry replied, “I’m always doing something different.” (Warwick Beacon photo)
