CHAPMANVILLE — Chapmanville Regional High School’s second annual Trunk or Treat held on Tuesday, October 29, 2015 provided more than 750 children with a fun and safe place to celebrate Halloween. This year the event was sponsored by the CRHS Student Council.
Mr. Chris Kidd, a CRHS Social Studies teacher and local radio broadcaster, served as the emcee.
Among those participating with a trunk this year were Aracoma Drug Store, Rebound Physical Therapy, The Candle Shoppe Florist, Workman’s IGA, LB&T, Ron Ward Insurance, Delegate Jeff Eldridge, Logan County Probation Office, Chapmanville Police Department, Town of Chapmanville, Logan Detachment of the WV State Police, Chapmanville Volunteer Fire Department, The Tiger Clinic, Shining Light Baptist Church, CMS Student Council, and the CRHS Prayer Club.
New to the event this year were face painting, an outdoor movie, and popcorn. Trunk participants were entered in a drawing for various prizes. Mullins Car Wash and Fountain Place Cinema were gracious enough to donate many of the prizes.
The CRHS Student Council would like to thank all of those who participated this year in treating the children of the Chapmanville and Harts area.
This is part of a new initiative at CRHS to give back to the local community. The school has decided to work locally with businesses and community members to make sure that families suffering from the loss of jobs across the area enjoy holidays and functions with as much ease as possible. Some of their other efforts include using local businesses for printing and photography and donations of food baskets. The Tigers hope that by creating an environment centered around philanthropy students will be encouraged to grow up as caring citizens in their community.
