Trick or Treat Street

From gangsters to goblins, the Oct. 31 Trick-or-Treat Street in Grant had it all. The Chamber-sponsored event was once again well-attended. The annual candy-quest attracted approximately 300 costumed youngsters who visited Grant’s main street businesses, senior center, Westview Retirement Community and the Perkins County Museum.

Engel “retires” from haunting City of Grant

The identity of Grant’s favorite spook has finally been revealed.
The costumed ghoul has haunted the streets of Grant annually for 13 years each Halloween.
The scary apparition would slowly trek from business to business, enter each building, pause for a few moments, then wordlessly exit, leaving employees and customers bewildered and just a bit unnerved.
In a farewell note, the prankster explained, “All these years I’ve put the fear in family and friends both near and dear!
Thirteen years has come and gone, now it’s time to call the pawn.
All my fun must come to an end, since next year, Lord willing, my “new life” will begin!”

The perpetrator of one of Grant’s most successful Halloween pranks, Lisa Engel, plans to move to Arizona.




Trunk-or-treaters in Elsie have successful evening




On Halloween 2012, the youth of Elsie were dressed in their finest costumes and ready to go trunk or treating on main street.  Trunk-or-treat is an opportunity for the rural families to hand out treats from their cars for Halloween.  The event was a great success. (Photo by Joan Craig)

Westview in the Halloween spirit




Westview residents enjoyed children and parents who came to Westview Retirement Community on Halloween afternoon to trick-or-treat.  There were plenty of “treats” with very little “tricks.” Pictured are:  Lisa Resor, Robert Resor, Christopher Resor and Westview resident Dorothy Meyer.
