Our Trunk or Treat outreach event on Sunday, October 27, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. is quickly approaching! We are looking forward to the opportunity to interact with upwards of 50 children from the neighboring community.

Several people have signed up to provide candy, but we still need volunteers to help distribute the candy and to decorate their cars. For added fun come dressed in costume or your favorite Halloween attire if you like. Everyone is a kid at heart.
