Spooktacular Halloween Trunk or Treat – Friday October 26, 6:00-8:00PM

Parents, we welcome you to participate in all the fun. We need volunteers to decorate the trunk of their vehicles for trick or treaters. We are hoping to have a large amount of trunks decorated for all the kids to enhance their trick or treating experience!

What you need to do:

  1. Decorate the trunk of your car as fun or spooky as you like. (You are welcome to have extra decoration along side your vehicle)
  2. Bring Candy to pass out to eager trick or treaters
  3. Most importantly… HAVE FUN with the kids!

We will have the Gym decorated and coaches dressed up and ready to help pass out candy and get the party going! Don’t miss out on the Halloween Fun!

Please sign up your trunk at the front desk ahead of time (call or email if simpler) to help us establish numbers.

Parking lot set up will begin at 5:00pm.

*Do you or someone you know own a home based business? Decorate your trunk and have business cards handy to pass along to parents as a promotion for you business.

Outdoor footwear

It’s that time of year again!

Please help us keep our gym safe and clean. We have provided ample amount of boot racks to ensure all outdoor footwear is removed when entering our gym as well as a place to store them safely. Please do NOT leave them on the floor in front of the boot racks or in front of the door as this creates a tripping hazard.

Parents, lets all be great role models to our children!
