Local trunk-or-treat returns, free event for kids

SALISBURY, Md. – The Crown Vic Boys and Girls Club Chapter 12 hosted their annual trunk-or-treat for community members on Saturday afternoon after taking a year off because of the pandemic.

The day was filled with music, games, costumes, and of course candy. Kids and their families were invited to lake street park to trick-or-treat, but out of spookily decorated car trunks.

We’re told the organization does a lot to give back to the community which includes feeding the homeless, supporting other local organizations, and hosting free events like this one for kids.

The president of the club tells 47 ABC, she just wanted kids to feel normal again, let loose, and enjoy some fall festivities. “The kids checking each other out and just the ‘hype-ness’ of Halloween spookiness is the best,” says Janelle Deshields, President of the Crown Vic Boys and Girls Club Chapter 12. She adds, “Just being able to socialize cause for a year or over a year that was kept to a very minimal ordeal, so just the fact to be able to socialize with everyone.”

We’re told their next big event will be a free Easter egg hunt in the spring.

The group will also host next year’s Regional meet of Crown Vic Boys and Girls clubs around the world, right in Salisbury.
