If traffic is any indication, last night was a howling success as the little people AND big people participated in a night of "trick-or-treating" fun across our community.
The Sheridan Wesleyan Church hosted their "Family Fall Fun Fest." There was something for everyone...inflatables, photos, snacks, plus games for the wee ones. Passing out close to 20,000 pieces of candy, Lead Pastor, Darrell White says it's all about community.
First United Methodist Church held their annual "Trunk-or-Treat," in their parking lot on West Works. For this church, Halloween is the eve before All Saints Day which they will celebrate on Sunday and Zell Derryberry says they also incorporate the pumpkin theme.
Two of Sheridan's facilities taking care of the elderly, Sheridan Manor and Westview Healthcare Facility, also offered a safe venue for Halloween fun. Lining the hallways, Activity Director at Sheridan Manor, Lisa Kramer, says mixing the younger crowd with the elderly equals love.
Agnes Anderson was there handing out candy.
Dorothy McIntyre who lives at Westview agrees.
Yvette Voogd,activity director at Westview says the candy wasn't just for the kids.
These three words could be heard all over town.
