Successes again for Chapel in the Pines Halloween Fun By Heather , Bluffparkal.org  heather@bluffparkal.org  


Halloween comes early for residents of Bluff Park. On Wednesday, October 25, 2006 Chapel in the Pines Church celebrated its fourth annual "Trunk or Treat" and festivities. “Trunk or Treat” was suggested as a fun and safe alternative to traditional trick or treating. The evenings events which were open to the community and church members included a free dinner for first time visitors, “Trunk or Treat” where kids trick or treat car trunks that have been decorated by members of the church, carnival games and contests. Church member Hester Wills likes the alternative to trick or treating and finds its a good way to see other people in the community. “Its a safe way to celebrate Halloween with the kids you know and also the people in the area that we do not  get to see every Sunday.” 

Kids donned their costumes and had  a nice dinner in the church. Then it was off to trick or treat some cars for Halloween candy. “The kids love it and they get to ware their costumes more than one night, says Trunk or Treat Coordinator Linda Ifashina. The trick or treaters also got to participate in some carnival games and hang out with friends.

 The evening was not complete with out a costume contest and an award for best decorated trunk. This years winner of the costume contest was Elizabeth Rae Chapman as Bat Girl. Diane Pou took home the best trunk award, dressing herself and her trunk up in pumpkins. Diane also played the old Halloween favorite The Charlie Brown Great Pumpkin movie on a VCR in her trunk.  

The Halloween fun still continues at Chapel in the Pines with a free pancake breakfast on Saturday, October 28 from 8a 'till 10a. People can also purchase a pumpkin at the Chapel in the Pines Pumpkin Patch from noon until 8p each day through Halloween.
