Judy Hull thought the first ever Bay St. George Crime Stoppers Trunk ‘n’ Treat was fantastic.
In addition to having her two children, five-year-old Leland and 10-year-old Sophie, involved in trick-or-treating at the location, she also had the family’s pickup there with suitcases full of treats to pass out.
“They love it,” she said of her children.
“It’s certainly a safer area for them,” she said of the set up in front of Stephenville High School that has a combination of private vehicles and first responder vehicles involved.
She believes it’s something that should be done every year and maybe even in a larger area.
Jacen Gosse, a 12-year-old trick-or-treater, said he liked the Trunk ‘n’ Treat idea and going around in a small area collecting treats.
Karen Bennett of Crimes Stoppers said the group plans to make this an annual event and believes after this successful first one that it will catch on.
