Trunk or Treat

Trick or treating door to door can be difficult when there are no sidewalks and the roads are busy with traffic. Old South Church in Kirtland wants to help out local children by offering a safe alternative. Children are invited to come on Saturday, October 28 to “trunk or treat” in the church parking lot. They will receive candy from people offering it out of the trunks of their cars. Those who wish to offer candy are invited to come at 4:30 so cars can be arranged. The church is encouraging people in addition to bringing candy to share to get in the spirit of Halloween and decorate the trunks of their cars where the candy will be. The church will be offering candy and some education to the adults as well. “Around the world there is a lot of child labor involved in the harvesting of the cocoa beans that go into the production of chocolate,” says the church’s pastor, Rev. Ian Lynch. “So we will be offering chocolate products from Equal Exchange both as an act of hospitality as well as a way to educate others on the importance of fair trade products.” After receiving candy, everyone is invited to stay for games and other fun activities which are free and scheduled to last until 7 PM.
