Halloween is just around the corner, so please let me know your plans for the trunk or treat or trick or treat.  Also, if you’re having a fall festival, chicken stew, etc. in October, please let me know.  The column is only as good as you make it.  I’ll be happy to assist in any way.

Fall Festival at New Union Church was a great success thanks to wonderful weather, a variety of vendors, great food, terrific music and a silent auction.  We really appreciate everyone’s work to make this a success, and we really appreciate all the folks that came out for the fun and fellowship.
