Trunk or Treat: A Spook-tacular Alternative

Halloween is just around the corner, and like most years, this year the spooky holiday falls on a school night. For parents, trick or treating midweek can be a real challenge. Getting healthy food into kiddos’ bellies beforehand, dressing them up in their adorable costumes, and then following them through the neighborhood streets after dark can be fun, but it’s also tiring.

Festival of Trees

The Festival of Trees was a charity event organized by Team Elevate of Keller Williams in partnership with the Meridian Ranch Recreation Center. The event raised money for local non-profits through the communal celebration of the Christmas holiday.
