Orchard Knob Community Treat in the Trunk event is set for Thursday, Oct. 31, from 5-7 p.m. at Orchard Knob Elementary School.
Participants are asked to decorate a (car or truck) trunk with educational, seasonal, sports, Halloween, or organizational decorations as well as provide candy, school supplies, or nutritious snacks for children who visit the group's trunk. The idea behind this event is the same as trick-or-treating from house to house but in a more controlled, safe, and educationally rich environment . The children will stop at each trunk, receive candy, school supplies, nutritional snacks, organizational literature, and may be entertained by the hosting trunk.
The trucks will be judged by community partners for style and originality. Prizes will be awarded for best trunk. In addition to "Treat in the Trunk “ HCDE and community organizations will provide and distribute information about resources available to parents and students.
