Annual Trunk or Treat Event Hoping for a Boo-tiful Night

With the moon in its first quarter stage, the skies will be just black enough to cast shadows for the ghosts and goblins, princesses and pirates, super heroes and silly clowns to be out and about for Hope UCC’s Annual Trunk or Treat Event scheduled for Friday, October 27, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

With absolutely delightful weather, last year’s event had nearly 300 children, along with adults who accompanied them, coming to enjoy the treats from 13 decorated vehicles.  Nearly 75 cups of hot chocolate, 14 dozen doughnut holes, 12 dozen cookies, cupcakes and bars, and three gallons of apple cider were shared with our members and community neighbors.

Beginning planning now on how to decorate your vehicle and come to join the fun.  Our goal will be to have at least 15 vehicles in our lot for that night.   Baked goods: cookies, bars or brownies, can be brought to the church by 3:00 p.m. on Friday, October 27.

A sign-up sheet is available in the main entryway or contact Pastor Mary Beth at or 393-2400, beginning on Sunday, October 8, to register your vehicle or to donate items.
