Marlborough – On a pleasantly cool Oct. 20, the Marlborough Junior Woman’s Club (MJWC) partnered with One Hines Women’s Network to present the second annual Trunk or Treat in the parking lot of The Campus at Marlborough.

Nonprofit organizations, businesses and community leaders filled over 40 vehicle trunks with treats for hundreds of children. Activities took place around the lot including games and the distribution of free pumpkins. DJ Dan Brennan provided music for costumed kids to dance while judges chose notable outfits and awarded prizes to a number of honorees.

Event sponsors and vendor fees covered costs, and raised funds for the MJWC’s ongoing charitable endeavors.
