A thousand trick-or-treaters participated in last week’s 26th annual Trick or Treat Safety Street at the CVIC Hall in Minden.
“The Sheriff’s Office through our Explorer program is happy to host the Trick or Treat Halloween Safety Street event,” Sheriff Dan Coverley said. “It is a great event that provides a safe venue for kids of all ages to trick or treat.
