Trunk to Trunk & Blood Drive


The annual Trunk to Trunk and Haunted House Halloween extravaganza is coming to Kettering Friday October 27.

Food, drinks, music and... gobs of candy for the Kids.
_______________________

_______________________


What we need right now is volunteers with trunks (of your car!) decorated the night of the event.  And calling all D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) to assemble and roam the Haunted House in your finest monster gear.

And plenty other odd jobs, setup, cashier, cleanup...

_______________________


And not all the blood is from monster bites.

Become a blood donor by signing up for the annual blood drive before you get all sugared up.
