This year the newly formed Gnadenhutten Lion's Club of which I am the secretary hosted the first annual Trunk or Treat in the parking lot of the Community Savings Bank parking lot located on the square and across from the fire station. Trick or Treat was from 6:00-7:30. This being our first one and being on a Saturday and a football game night too....we weren't sure what to expect as far as a turn out. We had 140 treat bags done up plus a bag of little candy bars of about 40 just in case we ran out. Well, by 6:35....we had run out of all our treats! Luckily, the other Lion's Club members had candy that they were passing out, so we were still able to give out treats from all the trunks. We were just in shock at the amount of kids, parents and 4 legged trick or treaters! By the end of the night, we were trying to guess how many there were and we were guessing the number to be somewhere around 300 at the least....probably more! So next year, we are making up at least 300 bags of treats.
We all had a great time and the kids and parents loved our idea of Trunk or Treat. I was so surprised that so few of them had ever heard of it before. The kids were so polite and I heard lots of comments about how nice it was and how much they loved the decorations.
I hope you enjoy the pics and if you live in our neighborhood..........you are more than welcome to come and join us next year. All you have to do is drive in, open your trunk and decorate it if you wish. We encourage the ones passing out candy to dress in costume too!
We hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween too!
