      Pickaway-Ross’ Student Council is planning its third annual trunk-or-treat, taking place in the school’s Crouse Chapel Road student parking lot from 5-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27.

     Katie Hewitt, Student Council advisor, said the plan is for guests to walk from car to car to get their treats. 

     Open to elementary school-age children and younger, visitors can take part in a costume contest. 

     A trunk-decorating contest will be held for Pickaway-Ross students, with council awarding prizes to the top three. A 50/50 raffle also will be offered.

     Council President Cyrus Horsley, a senior in Sports Medicine, put Amber Thompson, Council secretary, in charge of planning the event.

     “She is the best person I could have picked,” Cyrus said.

     Amber, a senior in Early Childhood Education, said she thinks the knowledge she’s gained from her program will be an asset.

     “My experience working with children — as well as parents and other teachers — makes me comfortable running the committee and working on the trunk-or-treat project. I can work quickly and effectively to make this event the best it can be,” she said.

      Council members will be set up in the commons Oct. 18-27 for Pickaway-Ross staff members and students to sign up to pass out candy.

     In the event of rain, candy will be given to kids through car windows in a drive-through format.
