We had our Halloween Party and Parade last week. Everyone enjoyed themselves!!!!

The weather was fine so the walk down the shopping street was a good one. There were many interesting and wonderful costumes! Good work everyone.

The party on Saturday evening was also a nice one. We had a nice group and we all enjoyed wearing costumes, eating, drinking and talking. It was fun to see old and new faces there. Next will be the Christmas Party!!!
