Thank you to everyone who helped make Westwood's Trunk or Treat event a huge success! 

Even the police could not resist coming out on Tuesday, October 31st for the Trunk Or Treat event held at Westwood Elementary School. Hundreds of children from Westwood School and the neighborhood came out to participate. More than 200 lbs of candy and other treats were distributed to the little Trunk or Treaters including these two police officers (shown above).
