The Powell Branch held their annual 'Trunk-or-Treat' tonight. This year it was combined with a chili cook-off.
There was lots of food and fun for everyone.
The evening began with the food. There were many different varieties of chili to choose from, prepared by some
of the best cooks in the branch. A panel of nameless judges sampled them all and chose winners in a variety of
Congratulations to the following winners!

There was a slight controversy over the prize for best chili. The chili itself was white in color, not the traditional red.
I heard some discussion that chili, by definition, was red and therefore the chili in question was not actually chili. However,
if you were fortunate enough to have tasted the chili, it was good.
After the chili awards, the kids in costume lined up for a parade. Not sure exactly what to do, they marched around
the barn twice, and then ran off toward the parking area for the 'Trunk-or-Treat'.
It has become the tradition of the branch to have a halloween party each year. During part of the evening the children
go Trick-or-Treating, but not house to house. They go from one vehicle to the next in the parking lot. Everyone is
encouraged to decorate the trunk of their vehicle and pass out candy to the kids. Thus was born the name 'Trunk-or-Treat'.
The adults seem to enjoy the 'Trunk-or-Treating' as much as the kids. There were many great halloween displays.
Some included scary music, some jack-o-laterns, and others had lights and other decorations.
To wind the evening up, all were invited to enjoy a hay ride.
