The annual Trunk-O-Ween event on Friday, Oct. 30, sponsored by the Stilwell Area Chamber of Commerce, celebrated with more than 100 children and parents.

Participants lined up from the Elementary School to the Adair County Courthouse for candy and treats donated by area businesses. Some children stayed to compete in the costume contest sponsored by the Fraternal Order of Police.

It was a festive and fun time, with happy children gathering candy, which lasted about two hours. There were all sorts of creative costumes from a headless person to a flamingo. Behind a giant clown picture at a booth sponsored by the City of Stilwell, was a good witch attempting to fly, or was that Mayor Jean Ann Wright?
