TRUNK or TREAT FUN!
The Outreach Committee would like to thank everyone who contributed to our Trunk-or-Treat event on October 27. It was a phenomenal success!
We had more than 13 pounds of candy, costumed characters, spooky vehicles and close to a dozen people who showed up to staff the event.

We expected up to 50 kids from the surrounding neighborhood, but had at least 80! Everyone seemed very impressed by our efforts, even the passing traffic on Maple Street. It was a remarkable fun way to make contact and have a huge impact on our local community.
