Trunk or Treat

Families, we have a special event for your kids. On October 31 from 12:00-2:00 we are having a Trunk or Treat event right here in the parking lot.

In order to make this a huge success, we will need your help! We are looking for people to decorate their car trunks, and/or donate candy or cash to help fill the trunks with goodies!
