MOST CREATIVE TRUNK WINNER – Gerrish Fire Fighters Association

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of the trunk participants and volunteers who helped make our 2020 Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat a success!! We were able to avoid the wet weather and the little bit of wind didn’t deter the 17 vehicles that entered to win some really great prizes!

We had 247 vehicles that attended the event and voted for their favorite trunks in three different categories. Voting cards were handed in at the end of the drive-thru trunk displays and approximately 800 bags of candy were handed out.

THANK YOU to the Roscommon Area Public Schools for their support and allowing us to host the event on their campus. THANK YOU to all of the citizens and businesses that donated candy.
