Fox's Den: Halloween coming

Posted: October 14, 2013 - 4:15pm

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

The witching hour is fast approaching when all the small goblins run out to play. Greenbrier has some delightful places for kiddies to gather.

Oct. 30, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Greenbrier First United Methodist Church will host Trunk-N-Treat again for Greenbrier residents with close to 40 trunks parked open in their parking lot. This is an annual well-known party event for kids and parents to collect treats and favors. Register in their fellowship hall for hot dogs, drinks, popcorn, cotton candy and snack cakes. They are at the corner of Hwy 65 and Tyler Street.

Oct. 31, 7 p.m. House of Prayer Church will host a Tour & Treat event called “Castle Cornerstone.” Tour their Castle to find a treat in every room with games, baked goodies and candy bags for children ages to 11. They are at 684 Hwy 65N, next to Barkley Auto Service.

Oct. 26, 2013, 5-9 p.m. Woolly Hollow State Park. A free night of fun at the first annual Woolly Holloween! There will be hot chocolate, a bonfire with spooky stories, hay rides, and fun games for all ages. (501) 679-2098 for more details. Be sure to wear your Halloween costume! 82 Woolly Hollow Rd.

If you know of a church or group hosting any other events for Halloween fun for Greenbrier kids, call or e-mail me before next Friday morning so we can make a complete list of activities in next Tuesday’s edition.

Oct. 26, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The 68th   Fall Festival outside the Greenbrier City Event Center. Booths will be set up for fun in raising funds for our School District. King and Queen Coronation begins at 5 p.m. at the Panther Pavilion. Candy bars and raffle tickets are being sold by Queens and Kings for all Fall Festival activities.

I heard from David and Susan Reid. Seems the raw sewage problem periodically running into and over their yard has not stopped. It has been over two years and, although the city now responds when they are called, the problem persists with no planned solution other than to move contaminated soil around. How would you like human waste floating in your yard every so often?  I’m sure you will hear more about this problem.

Dorothy Reynolds loves reading the Greenbrier News on Tuesdays in The Cabin and I loved hearing from her. Congratulations to Greenbrier UCA summer graduates: Sherrie Wiley, Marie Betancourt, Patricia Amos and Melissa Nokes.

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