One more night for treats in Cochran.

One more night for treats in Cochran.

Halloween was last Saturday.  But children in Cochran had one more chance to dress up and get candy Friday night at a Trunk or Treat hosted by Bleckley PTO.  Faculty from both the primary and elementary schools decorated their "trunks" in areas at the old high school baseball field with different themes, offering a variety of games and activities.

There a contest awarding the top three "trunks" for both the primary and elementary school.  Each was awarded a cash prize that could be spent on their classroom as they chose.  Proceeds from the night will go to both the primary and elementary schools for expenses such as art supplies and field trips.
