Trunk or Treat!

My daughter is a first grader at the Catholic school.  Last year our school got a new principal.  One thing he has made a strong effort to do is be a part of the community.  This year he came up with the idea to have a Trunk or Treat that was open and free to the public. I didn’t know what a Trunk or Treat was until this event. It is where people decorate the trunk of their cars, set up a little game for the kids to play and then give them candy.
