Monmouth University Trunk or Treat a big hit for the community

Patty Booth O’Neill

Monmouth University students did an amazing job of organizing a Halloween extravaganza on Sunday afternoon for local kids and families.

Sororities, fraternities and school clubs pulled their decorated cars into a parking lot, the trunks open and filled with candy for trick or treaters. Student used their imaginations to decorate their autos as haunted houses or some decorated with the theme of their clubs, such as the ski club. Kids went from one display after another not wanting to miss one piece of candy.

Hundreds showed up for the free goodies from over 50 cars parked around the perimeter.

There was music and pumpkin painting and plenty of entertainment. Even “Chris Christie” was there, asking for votes on whether  the proper term for the famous Jersey sandwich is pork roll or Taylor ham. Of course, a real Jerseyite would not need to ask. Pork roll, of course.

An impressive job done by students for the kids. Kudos.Patty Booth O’Neill
