November … Many thanks to all who participated in the Trunk ‘N’ Treat sponsored by the Brooks Rec Department. Turnout was spectacular — awesome trunks and some really creative costumes. As Jack Skellington once said, “I just can’t wait until next Halloween. I’ve got some new ideas that will really make them scream.”
