I am reaching out to you for help. After months and months of depression, sadness and confinement, its’ time to bring back some happiness and fun – especially for our children of Clark.

Trunk R Treat will be the first major event for the Rec Dept since the Pandemic began.  I am reaching out to all residents, organizations and businesses in the hopes of having the entire recreation parking lot – front of building, side of building, front of tennis courts – with plenty of trunks – decorated and donation of candy to disperse to the children. Of course safety measures of social distancing of each car will be of utmost priority and a one way only will be set up for trick r treating.

Besides trick r treating the event will also include our DJ, Corn Maze, Hatchet throwing (Velcro), pumpkin carving, train ride, stilt walkers, costume contest, prizes, snacks and more. I’m asking YOU to help me please make this event tremendous for our kids.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best Regards,

Ralph Bernardo

Director of Recreation
