LAPLACE — The first St. John the Baptist Parish Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat was a huge success. Halloween candy and other prizes were given out to excited, costume cladded children and families as they visited the decorated trunks and friendly faces of President Hotard & her staff, Council and participating agencies including the District Attorney’s Office, Fire Department, Sheriff’s Office, Assessor’s Office and Library.
