The annual trunk or treat was hosted on Oct. 31 by the Laramie High School clubs at LHS.

Trunk or treat is an alternative version of trick or treating usually held in school or church parking lot.

At LHS, trunk or treat is held by the clubs within the school such as International Club, Spanish Honors society, and many others.

Susy Villasenor, senior at LHS and a member of the Spanish Honors society, said “Our club meets once a week so I would say we started meetings two weeks before just to get everything together and know exactly what we wanted to do.”

During the event of trunk or treat, clubs or church members, depending on where the event is taking place, decorate the trunks of their cars to make it a little more interesting while the trick or treaters make their rounds.

“We had four representatives help out. Phillip, Isa, Steve, and myself,” Villasenor said.

“I think we had a successful trunk or treat because of the community participation in this fun event,” Villasenor said. “It would not have been possible without spreading the word to schools and other places around town. Also, a big help was the participation of other clubs.”

Many of the participants that helped out in this year’s trunk or treat, have helped out during previous years. This event assists in promoting students to participate in the community and lend a helping hand.

“It’s always fun seeing what other clubs come up with for their cars themes,” Villasenor said. “Also, it’s great chance to see what costumes were most popular this year and, in a way, show the community what the high school is up to.”

International Club member and LHS senior, Tasen Barry, also attended and helped out with the event.

“I absolutely loved it!” Barry said. “Seeing all the kids dressed up was by far the best part but, being able to pass out candy and give a little back to our community and being involved was also so amazing.”

“The only down side of the event was that it was freezing cold outside and all the kids were cold” Barry said.
