Fox's Den: Rain didn't stop Halloween fun

Posted: November 4, 2013 - 12:51pm

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

The EAST Program of Greenbrier High School will host their annual Veterans Day Ceremony Monday Nov. 11. A veteran is any person who was enlisted in the armed forces. If you know of a veteran in the armed forces whom you would like to honor, call the Greenbrier High School to make a reservation at 679-4236. Lunch is served after the rally to all veterans and their family and friends who attend with them.

Rain did not dampen the enthusiasm for many on Halloween. More than 40 trunks were opened at Greenbrier First United Methodist Church, and Immanual Baptist Church entertained and gave treats to almost 500 little ones during their big event. For photos go to spotted.thecabin.net. You can also find more photos of Red Ribbon Week there. Greenbrier High School students held a STOMP contest to end their week of events pledging to be drug and smoke free.

I had a delightful taste surprise when I stopped in to Miss Ann’s Kitchen on Highway 65, next door to The Spa Salon in Springhill. Miss Ann is announcing new dinner hours now from 3-6 p.m. She has been doing a good lunch menu from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. with plate lunch specials that change every day for $6.95. Her cooking is delicious home style. Drop in, visit her on Facebook or call 501-257-0658 for pick-up.

I also met Chickys Kitchen Cupcakery (what a name!) at the Greenbrier Fall Festival and was impressed with her beautiful cupcakes as well as her prices. Danelle Nixon brought her business here from Woodward, Okla., six months ago and will deliver for a small fee. You can call 479-217-0457 or find her on Facebook.

Tell everyone you know about the start of GED and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes that will now be held in Greenbrier at the Middle School Building. This is right behind Fred’s in Building #1—Room 116.  The first classes start tonight and will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-8 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome and study materials and educational assessments are free, provided by the Conway Adult Education Center. There has been a need for this and I’m happy to see that students unable to drive to Conway or who work long hours will now have evening classes right here.

Immanuel Baptist Church was a very busy, happy place on Halloween and told me of their upcoming event Tuesday Nov. 26. For the third year they will serve a complete Thanksgiving meal to anyone in this community for free. All you have to do is show up. In past years they have served about 100 people and expect more each year.

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