Trunk Or Treat

Columbia School District is hosting a Trunk or Treat for the children of the community.

School groups, businesses, and other organizations are invited to participate by hosting a trunk. There is no cost for sponsoring a trunk, but we ask that you provide your own candy; we are estimating approximately 2,000 children.

The goal is to have 40 or more trunks for the event. Please contact Monika Cook at or at 592-6641 if your organization would like to participate.

Let's make this a great community event!
