The Chamber’s Fun Committee works hard to put together great events for our community and it’s extremely gratifying to us when one succeeds as greatly as the recent Costume Parade and Trunk or Treat event did. 205 kids signed up for the prize drawing and participated in the parade with even more kids and families joining in for the Trunk or Treat. I talked to families from Burdick and Hope and Lincolnville and even a group that came in from Salina for our event!
The Fun Committee wanted to make sure and recognize everyone who contributed to this fantastic success. Thank you to Kenny Staatz and the Herington Fire Department for bringing out the firetruck to lead the parade. The Dickinson County EMTs deserve a big round of applause for handing out reflective bags and other safety materials.
We were so excited for the number of Trunk or Treat stations we had. Thank you to the American Legion Riders, the First Baptist Church, the Throttle Jockeys Car Club, the VFW Ladies Auxiliary, all the businesses (especially State Farm for bringing the big bear) that turned out, as well as the many residents who set up a truck and handed out candy.
It was so hard to pick of winner of the best decorated treat station; the group finally decided to split the prize between Tonya Utech with First Impressions and Lisa Herpich. The three drawings for the $50 in Local Bucks went to Magaen Bell, Mileah Backhus and Aiden Thibodeau.
Again, thank you to everyone who helped to make this event the rousing success that it was!
