WCC was one of several churches and organizations that participated in Winona Lake Limitless Park’s second annual Trick or Treat on the Trail on the afternoon of Oct. 28. More than 2,000 children and adults gathered to walk the trails and collect treats at various points along the route. Evening activities, in which 300 people participated, included a bonfire with S’mores, games, storytelling and the movie, “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.”
WCC staff and volunteers set up a tent and passed out candy and WCC swag to the children and provided chili soup for families. WCC was invited to participate by Holly Hummitch, who is the director of Winona Lake Limitless Park and a WCC attendee. Holly’s goal for the event each year is to provide a fun fall event for families that also allows them to enjoy the park and the trails and greenway system.
“Trick or Treat on the Trails was a fun community event to be part of,” said Greg Demopoulos, pastor of outreach and engagement at WCC. “We are grateful to Holly and her team for putting on such a great day of activities for families to enjoy. The event is the perfect opportunity for churches and organizations to show their support and connect with our friends and neighbors. A special thanks, too, to the WCC staff and volunteers who stopped by to help at the booth.”
WCC staff and volunteers who participated were Greg and Maria Demopoulos, Jorg and Beth Fehlmann, The Ryan Langeland Family, Micah and Carissa Metzger and Denny and Cookie Wilson.
