Byron Health Center will host a Trunk-O-Treat in the Byron Health Center Friendship Corner courtyard and parking lot, in one week on Thursday, October 27th from 5:00–7:00 p.m. Byron Health Center is located at the corner of Carroll and Lima Roads, 12101 Lima Rd in Fort Wayne.

What can be better than cars and candy bars? Byron Health Center staff and family along with special guests, the Fort Wayne Corvette Club and Eel River Elementary school students and PTA, will bring trick-or-treaters out a bit early to enjoy some pre-Halloween Trunk-O-Treat fun among parked cars with decorated trunks and plenty of candy. Members of the community are also invited to join in the Trunk-O-Treat event. Byron Health Center residents will also come out and help pass out the candy. There will be a fire roaring in the fire pit. Warm up in the Eakin Family Room with some hot chocolate and catch a spooky movie on the big screen TV. This will be a fun-filled fall evening for all! The event will be held rain or shine and is free of charge.

Several local mascots, including the Fort Wayne Derby Girl’s Mean Jean, the Fort Wayne TinCaps’ Johnny TinCap, Crazy Pinz’s Stryker the Parrot, the Fort Wayne Mad Ant, Indiana Tech’s Maximus & the Indiana Tech Cheerleaders and the Fort Wayne Fire Department’s Spotz and are expected to attend the event along with both the Huntertown Fire Department and Fort Wayne Fire Department. Candy for the Trunk-O-Treat is being generously provided in part by several Byron Health Center friends and partners as well as members of the Byron Health Center staff. As always … donations of Halloween candy are always appreciated. Generous sponsors of the event include Grandview Pharmacy, HTS Healthcare Therapy Services, Indiana Tech, Mental Health America in Northeast Indiana, Gordon Food Service and ProStrip Professional Metal Refinishing.
