Trunk or Treat -
Each year on October 31 the people of City View dress up their rides and pass out trunkloads of free candy to our neighborhood kids. Many volunteers are needed to make the annual Trunk or Treat event a successful outreach to the families of our community. Be sure to pick up trick-or-treat candy - we recommend 2 bags per household - and deliver it to the lobby bins. For ideas on how to decorate your car, pick up a list at the Trunk or Treat display today. And don't forget to invite the neighborhood!
