WIC to hold trunk or treat


This year, event organizers expected more than 1,500 people to come through the event.

WIC Certifier Kyrissa Gray said each year they hold a fall festival, but this year they made a decision to change it up a bit to give local parents a safe place to trick or treat with their young ones.

At the same time, Salem Springs Baptist Church will host a community-wide Trunk-or-Treat at the church on Alabama 99 in Elkmont.

Owner Lisa Elkins said it's her first year doing this, but she has plenty of Halloween decorations ready for families to check out and expects parents and kids will appreciate the opportunity to get plenty of candy without ever leaving their vehicle. They will have snacks and a parachute game that a lot of kids have played in elementary school and a little craft for them to do.

Draghi has promised to keep interest rates on hold until "well past" the end of the bond-buying program. The decisions could be outlined in a statement, followed by a fuller explanation in a news conference.

The event, free and open to the public, begins in the parking lot of the Holy Name Social Center, 53 Alderman St., with "trunk or treat" from 5 to 5:30 p.m. A trophy and "bragging rights" will be awarded to the person with the best decorated trunk.

Veterans' Memorial Park is at 1650 Buchanan Blvd.
