TRUNK OR TREAT

It is time to Trunk-or-Treat!  For the past three years, area businesses have been getting in the Halloween spirit and taking part in a very popular festivity.  We spoke with Pastor Shalom Renner of the First United Methodist Church in Greenville who said this is the third year for Trunk-or-Treat.  There are approximately 20 area businesses participating at this year’s event.  Second Street will be shut down from the courthouse to the driver’s license facility. Several children's carnival games will be available at the church and there is no charge to attend. Donations will be accepted to help fund the event to ensure prizes and candy for all the children.  Last year, approximately 650 children and 650 adults attended and Pastor Renner is excited about the potential this year. If you have any questions or would like to participate by helping out or making a donation, call the church office at 664-1566. This year's event will be Friday October 28th from 5:30-7:30PM.
