Brisk winds didn't discourage the Halloween crowd from trick-or-treating Thursday night and Sheridan Media's Judy Hagerott was there and brings us this story.

It was a tad bit chilly last night for all those ghosts, goblins, and ghouls prowling the streets looking for those gooey treats, but for many, there were several Halloween hot spots that brought the most return.

The First United Methodist Church held their annual Trunk-or-Treat in the church parking lot. Pastor Don Derryberry was there handing out treats, dressed up for the occasion.

He says, the church of all places should be a safe place to go for Halloween.

The Sheridan Wesleyan Church opened its doors to hundreds looking for a safe and warm Halloween refuge. Their annual Family Fall Fun Fest had games for every age, inflatables, and of course, plenty of candy.

Pastor Darrell White says it's all about serving our community.

Sheridan's nursing homes weren't about to be left out of the fun. Hallways were crowded as residents lined up with bags of candy for the costumed little people to pass by.

Activities Director Yvette Voogd says Halloween is one of the highlights for the residents at Westview Healthcare Center.

Sheridan Manor Administrator Bruce Allison echoes those thoughts.

And it's not just the kids that stash the candy.
