Exeter's Trunk or Treat

Hot chocolate was perfect for a chilly Trunk or Treat night in Exeter and the EMF Bobcat cheerleaders were on hand to serve it up.


With a dusting of snow and temperatures in the 30’s Exeter’s Annual Trunk or Treat was moved inside the Legion on Sunday afternoon.


Instead of trunks, kids walked around the Legion to different stations where they got to see scary witches, walk the plank, fill up on hot dogs and cotton candy, play a game of Plinko or tic tac toe and see the dinosaurs at Jurassic Park.  It was a busy evening with over 80 kids who walked through.


There were plenty of treats to be hand and the Exeter Community Club sponsored the hot dog meal that was served free to everyone.  Sponsors of the meal and hot chocolate were Generations Bank, Sweetwater Bar, Casey’s and the Exeter Senior Center.


Each station could enter a decorating contest and the winners were the Zach Becker family for their Jurassic Park booth and Pirates Lane Strate and Kristine Hankins where you could walk the plank.
