Get ready for the funnest (that’s right, I said it) event of the entire year and come out for Trunk or Treat! October 26, 2008 from 5:00-7:00 pm is the time and the parking lot of The Donelson Fellowship is the place! On this night, the chilly, black asphalt canvas will be covered with cars, trucks, vans, and who knows what else, as people decorate their trunk (or tailgate) and give away candy to all the guests who come by for the fun!
This year’s Trunk or Treat will be full of fun and opportunities for the whole family to enjoy, with free hot dogs, chili and drinks, live music, inflatable slides and bounces for the kids, the Preschool L’il Punkins Zone (which has it’s own, dedicated bounce house) and much, much more.
If you’re anywhere in the world and want to visit our church on this night, this is your invitation! If you’re a member or attender at TDF, then obviously you’re invited as well, but we need more from you than just attendance. We need your help to make this event a big success.
Here’s a list and brief description of some things you can do to help. You can do more than one!
Decorate a trunk on our parking lot and bring enough candy for 150 people. Your trunk doesn’t have to be extravagant (but it can be!) and the candy doesn’t have to be the high dollar variety, but we need 60 people to come with their trunks and hearts open wide!
Help with one of our Trunk or Treat teams.
-8-10 people to work in the Welcome and Registration Tent.
-10-20 people to help with the food and fire department.
-8-10 adults to supervise the operation of inflatable games.
2. Bring a pot of chili and a plate of cookies or brownies
3. Arrive at 2:00 pm to help with setup
4. Stay after the event to help with cleanup
5. Volunteer a generator for use during the event
The point is, there is a lot to do and we need everyone to get involved and help us push this event to it’s highest levels. Two other things that I didn’t place on the list, but are even more important are that we need you to pray for this event. Pray that we will make definite, significant connections with people who live in our neighborhood. Lastly, tell everyone you know about Trunk or Treat and see how many people you can bring to the event! It’s gonna be great!
People decorating in trunks need to enter the parking lot from the McGavock Pike entrance and be in place by 4:30 pm. Setup begins at 2:00 pm and if you want a prime location, you should plan to come early and get set up and then help out in other areas of preparation.
Chili needs to be dropped off between 4:00 and 4:45 pm. Chili not being judged in the competition can be dropped in the same location as chili competition entrants.
We’re still looking for specific help in the food & fire area, pumpkin carving and inflatable games. Help us out, will ya? If enough people would volunteer in these areas, it wouldn’t be necessary to serve the entire time.
