Many communities and groups are hosting safe “Trunk or Treat” events through the weekend while homeowners are reminded they have options for giving out treats including long-handled delivery devices, chutes down bannisters or just leaving treats out, relying on the honor system and lots of extra candy for the trick-or-treaters who are more greedy monsters.
