Trunk winners included 1st – Wellington Ritz Theatre; 2nd – Bawcom Supply; 3rd – First Baptist Church; and 4th – The Hamby Family.
“My grandsons wanted to attend the event, but they thought they were too grown up, so we did the spook house,” said Eva Hamby, trunk participant. “We had so much fun.”
Misty Youngberg, with her children, Aspen and Easton, created a timely trunk called “The Toilet of Doom” featuring the great toilet paper shortage of 2020 game toss.
Additional trunk hosts included Wellington Professional Women’s Club, Blaire and Currie Forrester, Mark and Debbie Huntress, The Red River Sun, Wellington EMS, The Twins – Janee Ingram and Renee Fourmentin, Mari Vela and Family, Keyan Keys – Edward Jones Investments, Jody and Taylor Coleman, Wellington State Bank, John and Saundra James, Warrick and O’Rear Families, Wellington Volunteer Fire Department, Sheriff Kent Riley and Holly Akeman with Mary Brown.
