SPECIAL TO

L’OBSERVATEUR

LAPLACE — The first St. John the Baptist Parish Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat was a huge success. Halloween candy and other prizes were given out to excited, costume cladded children and families as they visited the decorated trunks and friendly faces of President Hotard & her staff, Council and participating agencies including the District Attorney’s Office, Fire Department, Sheriff’s Office, Assessor’s Office and Library.

President Hotard would like to extend a special thank you to everyone who joined in to kick off Halloween. “It was amazing to see the turnout and our community come together for a fun and safe evening that was focused entirely on children,” said President Hotard. “Despite Covid-19, it was a great evening and we are already looking forward to making next year’s Trunk or Treat bigger and better.”

A few St. John the Baptist Parish officers transformed into their Super Hero characters to wish children a happy Halloween. Black Panther also known as Deputy Edward Webb, Superman also known as Supergirl also known as Cpl. Claudette Edwards, Wonder Woman played by Lt. Denise Bertrand, Bat Girl played by Sgt. Danielle Falgoust and Spiderman played by Deputy Jennifer DeFrisco arrived on their armored vehicle, the Bearcat.

Cpl. John Norsworthy and Cpl. Morris Sarah and Deputy Ingrid Perrilloux and Lt. Gloria Tassin enjoyed decorating their units with spooky themes.

All of the officers had a great time handing out bags of candy and glow sticks to hundreds of children who attended the event.
