  • Annual Coupland Halloween Party – Participants Wanted for “Trunk or Treat”

    I think this car gave up the ghost(s).

    I think this car gave up the ghost . . . and a few of his buddies.

    On Friday, October 31, the Coupland Civic Organization will hold its annual Halloween Party at the Depot—the second Trunk or Treat event. Last year, residents decorated vehicle trunks and the backs of SUV’s and pickups, parked them around the Depot grounds, and handed out candy to the children, who trick or treated from vehicle to vehicle. There will also be games and refreshments. This will be a fun and safe event where kids of all ages can enjoy Halloween.

    Last year several residents donned costumes, decorated their trunks, and handed out candy to the trick or treaters. This year, we are hoping for even more decorated vehicles. If you’d like to participate, just decorate your trunk or the back of your SUV or pickup, wear a costume if you wish, bring some Halloween candy, and back up to the Depot lot, on Friday, October 31, 5:30-7:30 p.m. If you have any questions, please email Civic Organization President Susan Schmidt at susans195@yahoo.com. This will replace the regular, general meeting of the CCO.

    That same night, the Old Coupland Inn & Dancehall is having a Family night Halloween with 3 bands and games for the kids. That night, there will be free admission for the kids. For those who are age 15 and older, admission will be $15.Please check back for information on the next monthly meeting, to be held on Monday, October 27, beginning at 6:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall of St. Peter’s Church of Coupland.
