"Trunk or Treat"

Main Street Elsie was the scene for something new this Halloween. The folks from rural Elsie brought their

treats and decorations in to make Main Street the place for the children to go trick-or-treating right out of

the backs of the vehicles. Families from as far away as Grainton brought treats to share with the costumed

kids of Elsie and the surrounding area for this Trunk-or-Treat event. Fun was had by kids of all ages.

wordlessly entering  and exiting businesses on main street,

and giving those inside a delightful fright. (Photo by Shari Friedel)










Twins Austin and Ashton Meyer of rural Grant, along with their dad,

Rendale, raised a crop of super sized pumpkins this year. At harvest

time, they all weighed well over 100 pounds, the largest weighing in at

158, just in time for Halloween carving. (Courtesy photo)
