Trunk or Treat!!

TreeHouse Playground hosted a Trunk or Treat event on Oct. 24 in the parking lot at Lititz Church of the Brethren.

Local families and businesses sat up trunks and handed out treats to the children in the community. Many of the trunks were creatively decorated.

Those in attendance enjoyed carnival games, treats, and bonfires.

Meanwhile, anticipation continues to grow for the opening of the TreeHouse Playground.

“The TreeHouse of Lititz is something that we are very excited about,” said Vicky Martin. “It will be a place where both of our kids (Isaiah, age 5, a wheelchair user, and Jacob, his 2-year-old typical brother) can play, together, and not worry about things like mulch beds blocking Isaiah from getting on the equipment or him being limited to only a few things to play with like our local playground. He won’t have to just stick to the swings and watch his brother run around at the TreeHouse; they can discover everything together!”

The Trunk or Treat was also wheelchair accessible.

“”The Trunk or Treat was so much fun!” added Martin. “It was wonderful to see Isaiah and his little brother able to trick-or-treat together &tstr; no steps or porches to worry about, like traditional trick-or-treating, which would stop our wheelchair using Hungry Caterpillar, Isaiah, in his tracks.”
