St. Peter’s United Church of Christ (UCC) hosted another successful night of Trunk-or-Treat on October 31st. This spooky activity is one for all ages, as St. Peter’s UCC creates a fun, safe environment for all families to go trick or treating. Along with getting lots of candy, kids can enjoy a bounce house, barrel rides, and a delicious meal that includes hot dogs, chili cheese dogs, chili, candy, popcorn, and fruit punch or soda. Families were all welcome to come celebrate Halloween by sharing meals and walking through the trunks.
Pastor David Poe commented, “Trunk-or-Treat went really well this year. Over 300 people came out! Volunteers brought in and served chili and hot dogs, which was very helpful. Pat Birkman was a huge help in the kitchen. Special thanks to the Pepsi company for donating a lot of drinks again this year. I’d like to thank everyone who came out and I hope you had a very happy Halloween.”
"I've always loved helping out with the Trunk-or-Treat," commented Lexi Oetterer. "I enjoy dressing up and decorating for Trunk-or-Treat, so that all the children can have a good time while out Trick-or-Treating. This year my group went as ‘Spongebob’ characters and recreated parts of Bikini Bottom. Everyone had a blast!"
“I thought this year was better than the last. Mainly because we had a more elaborate theme with more decorations,” Julia Unnerstall, junior at New Haven, stated.
From classic witches to Princess Poppy, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Thank you again to all those who helped out, and thanks to all who came out to St. Peter’s to help everyone celebrate Halloween.
