NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The PBA’s Second Annual Trunk-or-Treat was a big success despite being delayed a week due to bad weather and then getting some sprinkles on the rain date as well. Dozens of trick-or-treaters showed up on Sunday to attend the Trunk-or-Treat in the Sharing Network parking lot. Over twenty cars pulled up and all were decked out and ready for the afternoon of family friendly fun.
This was New Providence's second annual PBA Trunk or Treat, and children paraded around the parking lot in their costumes, trick-or-treating at each vehicle. Prizes were awarded for Best Trunk, PBA Choice Best Costume and Mayor's Choice Best Costume.
Mayor Al Morgan was enjoying the afternoon, along with Dr. Bob Robinson and Detective Michael Hand who planned the event with the PBA. “The joy and excitement of all the children brightened the dreary day. I really have to commend Detective Mike Hand and the PBA for putting together such a great community event despite the uncooperative weather,” said Morgan, “and thank you also to the Sharing Network for being such great community partners and hosting the event and to all our volunteers,” added Morgan.
Detective Hand, who planned the event, was happy the weather mostly cooperated, “After having to cancel the original date due to a storm, we were happy the rain held back for the two hours so the kids could enjoy getting their last dibs on some candy.“ Hand also wanted to thank the volunteers, “The PBA wants to thank the Lions Club, EMS and the Fire Department, all the volunteers and Al and Christine Morgan for helping make this event possible. The Sharing Network graciously let us use their parking lot and once again shows how they are a great partner to have in our community.
