Indians, cows, power rangers and many other characters ran down Sorority Row at the University of Alabama late Monday evening on October 24 during the annual Sorority Row Trick or Treat.

Girl Scouts attended the festivities and painted pumpkins with members of Kappa Delta Sorority.

“We were excited the sorority members prepared this for the girls,” said Lori Walters, Troop 12 leader.

Girls in Troop 12 painted faces on pumpkins, while other participants painted pumpkins different colors.

Margaret Prester, president of Kappa Delta, said their community service chair helped to coordinate the event with the Girl Scouts, one of Kappa Delta's philanthropy partners.

“We wanted to have fun with the girls and be sure they had a good time,” she said.

Even though Walters has a full-time job and her daughter is older now, she still enjoys her time with the Girl Scouts and remains devoted to her troop.

“I hope the girls have fun with the event and enjoy themselves,” Walters said.
