McMINNVILLE ? Local children will be offered a safe and fun way to celebrate Halloween when Linfield College students host the sixth annual trick-or-treat tour of campus Sunday, Oct. 31, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Children 12 years old and younger are invited to take part in the trick-or-treat tour of participating residence halls, sponsored by Residence Life and the Residence Hall Executive Council. Linfield students will lead the tours beginning in the Fred Meyer Lounge in Riley Hall. Cookies and hot chocolate will be provided to parents and children. Parents are expected to accompany their children throughout the tour.
"It is important for Linfield students to get involved in the community," said senior Meghan Parchem, community coordinator of residential relations. "It is also a way for us to give children a safe place to go trick-or-treating."
