Join us for some socially-distanced Halloween fun. Our staff and community volunteers will be masked up, our vehicle trunks will be decorated and we will have lots of goodie bags. No need to get out of the car; let your little ones grab the bag while showing off their masked faces as well. Please register so we can ensure there are treats for all.
