Dozens of Airmen and family members of the 144th Fighter Wing participated in a Trunk or Treat event Oct. 23 in a parking area near the 144th Maintenance Hangar at the Fresno Air National Guard Base.

The trunk-or-treat festivities, coordinated by the Airmen and Family Readiness and Key Volunteers group, encouraged  volunteers to adorn their vehicles with Halloween-themed decorations and dress up in costume to hand out candy to hundreds of costume-clad children and family members.

“This event is a small way to say thanks, not only to the men and women of the 144th Fighter Wing, but also to the family members who support them 24/7,” said Dorene Vierra, Airmen and Family Readiness Program Manager. “We know it’s just cars and candy, but we believe that coming together and having fun can be a building block towards helping to build better trust and a better community with each other.”

A trophy was awarded to the Medical Detachments haunted trailer for the best decorated vehicle.
