UPDATED 2:40 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25:

MTSU Panhellenic has canceled this year’s “Trick or Treat on Greek Row,” set for 5-7 p.m. today, Oct. 25, because of approaching heavy thunderstorms.

Leslie Merritt, director of MTSU’s Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, said in a campuswide email at 2:30 p.m. today that “due to the continued threat of inclement weather, College Panhellenic will be canceling the Annual Trick or Treat on Greek Row scheduled for tonight.”

The event won’t be rescheduled because of other scheduling conflicts this week, she added.

“All groups are encouraged to donate their candy to a children’s philanthropy,” Merritt said in her message. “We look forward to hosting the event next year.”

Organizers are asking parents to park across the street, in the university’s Rutherford Boulevard Lot, and use the lighted crosswalk at the traffic signal to escort their children to and from the event.
