Congratulations Pinckney Neighborhood – Great Trunk-or-Treat & Food Drive!

Pinckney Neighbors once again joined together for a wonderful community building event and community service project. We learned from Just Food that the donations collected at the Saturday October 26 Trunk-or-Treat added up to 191 pounds of food and $66! Just Food commends our efforts and passes on their sincere thanks for all Pinckney Neighborhood has done to help address food insecurity in Douglas County.

And on top of all that, there was a fantastic turnout of both trunks and treaters. Thanks to every one of the folks who set up the 19 trunks, booths and games, including many families, local businesses, a girl scout troop and the Tooth Fairy from the Douglas County Dental Clinic.  Thanks to the photography services of resident Don Pierce, we’ll soon have a bunch of photos in the Photo Gallery from the event. We estimate there were about 120 kids who attended and greatly enjoyed the afternoon.

Winners from the costume contest will be posted as soon as we get can post the pictures. We have the names of the “costumes” but not necessarily the names of the individuals in them, so we’ll be asking for your help in identifying them so we can deliver the certificates to them!

Thank you! Let us know if you enjoyed yourself, have any suggestion to improve it and especially if you want to do it again next year.
