Trunk or treat? Safe place for Halloween fun

The America and Roby Anderson Community Center, on the east side of Columbus at 421 McClure Road, hosted a trunk or treat event and cookout on Halloween. About 450 people attended the Oct. 31 festivities. The event was organized as a safe place for families to trick or treat. Formerly known as the Eastside Community Center, the facility reopened May 5 after it was closed in October 2015 after experiencing financial difficulties. It was renamed in honor of the late Roby and America Anderson, who founded the center in 1976, then known as Morningside Neighborhood Association.
