Had some nicer weather during the week with lots of sun and warm days. On Tuesday it went up to 54 degrees; Thursday was 54 degrees and Friday it hit 60 degrees. We did have some miserable rain and wind a few times too. I think we’ve had enough rain for this summer and next. There were frosty mornings also. How many forgot to turn your clocks back one hour Sunday morning. Sure don’t like it getting dark so early now.
The rain held off for the Halloween party at the Pavilion on Wednesday. Thanks to Brian and Nina for chairing this event. Quite a few kids, along with parents, showed up. There was cookies, punch and hot chocolate to enjoy and the “goodie” bags were filled to capacity this year. Thank you to all who donated to make the evening a good time. The judges were Tim and Lori Higley and Roda Stasiak. They had a difficult time to pick the winners as there were some really good ones. However, here are the winners: 0-3 — Prettiest, Haley Mensch; Funniest, Axl Baton; Scariest, Emerson Brumwell. 4-7 — Prettiest, Tessa Chapman; Most Original, Odin Setzer; Scariest, Xander Kapler. 8-11 — Prettiest, Kaeleigh McDonald; Funniest, Sara Silfie; Scariest, Dylan Silfie. 12 and up — Prettiest, Elizabeth Kapler; Funniest, Brandy O’Conner; Scariest, Cheyenne Richlin. After judging was done, Brian McGuire had his hay filled trailer ready, decorated with all kinds of Halloween spooky things and lots of lights. Everyone boarded and he took them around town to those who had their porch light on and they were given a treat. Back to the Pavilion for last minute cookies and punch and on home. Everyone had a really good time and look forward to next year.
DJ Fitzgerald stopped over on Thursday evening to visit and have a cold “brewsky” with Brian McGuire. Always a good time

Don’t forget this Saturday and Sunday is the New Albany Volunteer Fire Company play. Saturday is at 7 p.m. and Sunday is a 2 p.m. matinee. Looks like another good one, titled “A Fractured Sequel” this year. Get out and enjoy. They do a great job with these plays and it’s a good way to support the Fire Company. November 16th and 17th is the next round. Those start at 7 p.m.
St. Vladimir’s Church will have their Ethnic Foods dinner on Sunday, November 25th at the Social Hall. Time is Noon to 5 p.m. Eat in or take out. Nice to support the Church, so go and have an enjoyable meal.
Irene Pequignot spent the weekend with her mother, Mrs. Irene Huray, after spending some time on Saturday visiting with Mick and Lola Mattie in Forty Fort. Good time and lots of catching up with these cousins.
Bob and JoAnn McGuire enjoyed lunch on Saturday at Bo Brothers in Wyoming with a few of his class mates and talked about planning a reunion next year in May.
Did you make it to the polls and vote? Sure hope so. It’s your right to do so.

Happy Anniversary to V Rev Gary and Georgette Matychak as they celebrate on the 10th. Have a great day.
Bridge is looking good. It’s almost done. The sidewalks are done; it’s now two lanes and there’s just a little cosmetic things to finish up on. Great job to those guys for their diligence and hard work. I know it’s their job, but they had some really bad weather when they couldn’t work and then worked harder to get things done on time. Check the Lopez web site to see pictures of the progress.
Guess that’s it for now. Enjoy your week. Might be rainy, but will be warm, so take an umbrella when you go out. Have news call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get it in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
