On Oct. 31, Sebastian Lodge members hosted a trunk or treat event to end Red Ribbon Week for the students of Fellsmere Elementary School. Drug Awareness bags were used at 11 vehicles supervised by 17 members. Drug Awareness coloring books and bookmarks and red ribbons were among the treats given, as well as candy, bouncy balls, pencils, erasers, toothbrushes and bubbles. Members paid the cost of all items besides the Drug Awareness items, which totaled more than $600. The pirate ship was donated to the school following the event.
