More than 4,000 children are estimated to have participated in the big Halloween “trunk-or-treat” event at the former Roane Medical Center.
Organizer Robert Rogers said one of the participating churches told him it distributed more than 4,000 pamphlets at the event.
“We ended up with nine churches involved and had a lot of positive feedback,” he said. “So if the hospital is sold, we plan on finding somewhere else” to have it next year, he said.
The city owns the hospital building, which is up for sale.
