Trunk or treat

For dozens of costumed kids, Trunk-Or-Treat in the Lutheran Church Parking lot on Monday was the launching pad for a Halloween night of trick or treating.

The event, now in its fifth year, was co-sponsored by Community Education and Our Savior’s Lutheran. It was attended by well over 100 kids, said community education coordinator Rich Kern.

“It’s been a good event, getting the community involved. People in town help and kids from the school too, students from the National Honor Society and others.”

Besides treats dished out from car trunks, the event featured games, hosted by Kern, music and free food inside the church. The record warm weather, in the mid 60s, made for good turnout, Kern said.

“I think of all the years we’ve had it, it has been really cold, and sometimes we have to have it inside, but this is great weather.”
