Halloween in Elmwood
Did you go and see the Haunted Rooms at the Quonset?
Becky Callaway and Kevin Huxhold did a fantastic job. Who knew they were so into Halloween.
I hope this event gets bigger and bigger every year and brings people from other towns.
I hope you have taken a look around town and enjoyed the fall decorations and Halloween decorations BEFORE it snowed.
Did you see the Gazebo going up? It's going to be epic when it's finished!!
The year 2020 is looking good for a possible calendar line up of activities and events.
Do you want to get in on the planning?
The paved sidewalks will lead to a new parking lot area on the south side of the park. Accessibility sidewalks are also being poured from the existing parking lot to the picnic area. Something that has been desperately needed!!
If you would like to be on the park planning committee or participate in brainstorming or planning events for 2020 please email firstname.lastname@example.org

The Starry Knight parade happens at night. So how do you see the entries? Lights? Lights strung around tires, on floats. but lights with no extension cords. Battery-powered lights.
