Fox's Den: Getting ready for Halloween

Posted: October 21, 2013 - 2:59pm

Step into my den, pull up a comfy chair and a cup of tea and let’s chat.

One more Fall Fun Night has been added to the list of Hallowe’en activities for kids in Greenbrier.

Oct. 31, 6-8:30 p.m. Immanuel Baptist Church will host Tons of Fun with candy, inflatables, games, popcorn and hot dogs. They are at 61 Green Valley Drive across from Westside Elementary School.

If you know of any other events for Halloween fun for Greenbrier kids, call or e-mail me before next Friday morning so we can add to our list of activities in next Tuesday’s edition.

Oct. 26 is proving to be quite a busy day! The 68th  Fall Festival outside the Greenbrier City Event Center and then the King and Queen Coronation  at 5 p.m. at the Panther Pavilion.

Gail and Randy West of H & W Dime & Dollar are hosting “Old Ways from Old Days” at 659 Highway 225 East, 8.5 miles east of Highway 65 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. This is a free event for you to watch and learn old crafts from people who do things naturally. They will do such things as make sorghum, lye soap, sauerkraut and vinegar; bake bread in a wood fired oven, and demonstrate such things as old timey uses for local plants, outdoor cast iron cooking, wool spinning, quilting, treadle sewing, antique tractors and hit & miss engines, and hand-made jewelry. Home-baked food and goodies will be for sale.  Concessions and snow cones will be there.

The Christmas Expo is coming Nov. 9, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a whole variety of vendors, foods, crafts, door prizes, cocoa and cider and, most of all, a time to get a start on your Christmas shopping!  I can’t believe I said that already!  Plan on free pictures with Santa from 10 a.m. to noon — before the rush of the season starts.

Greenbrier First United Methodist Church reminds me they still have plenty of coats to give for free if you know of someone who might need one. Just drop by 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Friday.

‘Til next time, give me a call or drop me a line if you would like to chat……....bj
