Our parish grade school has a Trunk or Treat event every October. If you aren’t familiar with Trunk or Treats, it is an event where everyone parks in a lot and sits by their tailgate. The kids walk from car to car and trick or treat. The school charges $10 a car and sells pizza.
Well, it turns out that many of the teenagers miss going to Trunk or Treat. The Venturing Crew had been throwing around ideas about what to do as an October activity. They thought about a Halloween party or going to a haunted house. And one of them said, “Could we go to Trunk or Treat?” And then they all started reminiscing about how fun it was when they were in grade school and they participated in the event.
So they are going to help distribute pizzas at the event and do some other small jobs for the organizers. In return, they will have a table where they can hang out together and pass out candy (since none of them has a car). They will wear costumes and have a great time.
So this will mostly be a social event for them with just a little service thrown in. It should be fun for them.
