In light of COVID mitigation strategies, we had to cancel our beloved trunk-or-treat and replaced it with a socially distant and safe Halloween Parade, where students were able to visit stations around campus for healthy and useful treats. Although times are different, our students still had a fun time displaying their costumes.
