A Very Merrill Halloween

|

Every year the holiday season is kicked off with the spookiest holiday of them all, Halloween! Each Merrill community celebrates in their own way, whether it be with a party, costume contest, trick-or-treating, crafts, or all of the above. This year we received so many wonderful photos and just had to share them with all of you! 

The creativity we saw from residents all over the country was amazing as Bradenton (FL), Rolling Hills Estates (CA), and Clovis (CA) all went above and beyond! Bradenton residents took inspiration from Frankenstein as they created a festive pudding for their Halloween party.
