The Tazewell County Jaycees annual Trunk-Or-Treat event in Fondulac Plaza in East Peoria, Illinois was another hit this year with families living in the area wanting to celebrate Halloween with their children. Additionally, the Trunk-Or-Treat event showcases area businesses ability to give back this spooky season by giving children candy and other treats on October 31st from 4:00-6:00 pm.
The concept of Trunk-Or-Treat, as is done at churches and in various businesses, includes decorating a person’s car trunk and handing out candy for kids during the year. As a fun event, it captures the spirit of Halloween for kids who really enjoy dressing up and being involved in the festivities.
This year’s event was a big success with the Jaycees involvement including members: Levi Simpson, Lori Rowe, Heather Winemiller (2011 Illinois Jaycee Area 2 Vice-President), Adam Byerly (Treasurer for 2011-2012), Stella Link (Internal Vice-President for 2011-2012), and Scott Jackson, who has been involved with some Jaycees events since his involvement with November to Remember Wrestling/Live music show. The November to Remember show was cancelled for a few reasons this year and there may or may not be a possibility of another show in the future. Scott has been very supportive of what the Tazewell County group is doing and his help is appreciated.
The inclusion of the Tazewell County Jaycees, this year as well as every year, brings great feedback each year and appreciation for what the organization does. Trunk-Or-Treat gives children a positive spirit during the Halloween holiday. The Jaycees love giving kind comments to all the kids with great costumes who come through the Trunk-Or-Treat area in the Fondulac Plaza parking lot.
