Garden City’s 2017 Spooktacular Trunk or Treat was a roaring success as more than 2,000 trick or treaters and their parents thronged to the Towne Center parking lot on Thursday, October 26.
It was our largest one yet with 2500+ kids and at least 4000 total with parents, with 64 trunks (up from last year’s 59).
The event was co-hosted by the Garden City Downtown Development Authority and the Garden City Business Alliance.
“It was a fantastic night,” said GCBA President Kerry Partin. “I can’t thank all the volunteers and participants enough for making this such a wonderful event.”

They explored the healthful benefits of massage and the positive effect it has on stress. “Experts estimate that upwards of 90 percent of disease is stress-related,” McConnell said. “And perhaps, nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress.”

This Week’s Top Three Points to Ponder
1.) Influence Matters: Our influence over others always trumps our authority over others.
2.) Internal Competition: In the long run, our race is not solely against our competitors, but rather against ourselves and the fears and limited beliefs threatening to trip us up.
3.) Imagination All Grown Up: Bringing a child-like sense of wonder, curiosity, and imagination into the grown-up world of business might be one of the most mature things we can do.
