Sunday, October 25th 5:30-8:30 P.M.- Quarantine-o-Ween Trunk-or-Treat
Let the tricks and treats be had this Halloween! Much planning has gone into creating a social-yet-safe, outdoor event for the entire family. Not only will there be social distancing between participants but also between cars! Registration and properly worn masks are mandatory. No half-masks allowed, as noses are connected to the lungs, and gloves will be handed out at the event.
Whether you have young children, grandchildren or no children; love Halloween; enjoy wearing costumes; are looking for a creative outlet; or just really like candy, you are welcome as long as the safety precautions are followed. After treats are collected and the sun begins to dim folks are welcome to light Jack-o-Lanterns and set up lawn chairs at their assigned spaces to catch-up with surrounding neighbors. Please bring plenty of water, as it may still be very hot and the church will only be open for one-family-at-a-time bathroom use. This should be great fun for all with many photo opportunities!
There will be crafts for the kiddos, family Bingo with prizes, guess and win candy jars, and a Great Pumpkin photo booth!
Registration with Lisa is a must!
