The Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church held their annual “Trunk or Treat” event yesterday, and some 75 kids stopped by to get treats from 14 cars in the church parking lot.

It was a bright and breezy autumn day, so it’s a good thing it was yesterday and not today, because the snow flurries are whipping across the Old Mission Peninsula as I write this.

In fact, because everyone was wearing masks anyway, it almost seemed like a “normal” community event in these times when the Covid-19 pandemic continues to sweep through the country.

Covid protocols were in place, however, with each masked and gloved “trunker” handing out pre-packaged candy to little “treaters” dressed as pineapples and lions and princesses.

The trunkers also got creative with their techniques, like Pam and Rocko Fouch’s highly engineered candy chute, and Lisa Buckley’s fabulous monster-decorated trunk.

Here are a few photos of the happy event.
