Local Layton Businesses and Community Join Together for Family Fun
Published on November 15, 2013 by Scott Rudeen
Festively decorated cars lined the parking lot waiting for the third annual Trunk-or-Treat held at Broadview University–Layton to start. Little ghosts, goblins, witches, and other costumed kids lined up, ready to grab their treats. As the kids walked through the parking lot, they were given balloon animals, popcorn, coloring books, and a tour of the “scary trailer,” in addition to the traditional candy. Prizes donated by local businesses were handed out throughout the event to the best costumes.
An event that draws in 2,000 attendees requires behind the scene effort. The staff at Broadview did an amazing job of providing added services. The popcorn machine never stopped popping. Blowing up balloons to tie into dogs, flowers, and swords became a science. The librarian supplied the printed fliers distributed to various businesses in the community who passed them out to their customers. They bought candy, set up the scary trailer, and coordinated parking.
The success of this event is attributed to the 20 local businesses, students and staff that participated. On Chord Academy played their guitars. Sylvan Learning had a drawing for a tablet. Mama Jama Quilts, Lady Fitness, and Dollar Cuts donated items to give away. Davis County Animal Shelter dressed up dogs in costumes and were available for adoption. Other businesses involved include All Repair Auto Care, Edward Jones, Xerox Corporation, Farmers Insurance, Costco, Bark to Basics LLC, Captain Hook Towing, Tupperware, US Bank, Chick-Fil-A, It Works, and Oh My Dog Grooming. Donations and help also came from Office Max, Boondocks, AMC Theater, Visit Davis Area Utah, Sam’s Club, WinCo, and KD Printing
Local businesses that participated mentioned how well organized the event was, and expressed the desire to do it again next year. Looks like we have created an annual event that demonstrates our “we care” mission to our community.
