This year's Trunk or Treat was a huge success. The even took place on Saturday, October 26 at Lutheran Medical Center. This year, 35 businesses and community members decorated the trunk of their vehicle and passed out candy to 3,500 attendees. Participants also enjoyed carnival games, a photo station and a dance station. The success of this event is in large part due to our amazing volunteers and generous sponsors. Thank you to everyone who supported this event and came out to celebrate Halloween with us!
