Fall is coming slow but sure and this past week’s weather has been beautiful I was chuckling last night at the weatherman who is saying a cold front is coming in…. Define cold front because I’m not sure our hopes of cooler weather and their temperatures are the same. But regardless, I guess we’ll take what we can get and enjoy the break. Fall Festivals and events are kicking off.

I know by now everyone cringes when COVID is mentioned but personally, I am glad to see us returning to some of our treasured and traditional events. If you’re comfortable, get out and rejoin our community! They be more coming up.

Here’s what’s happening.

Faith UMC Annual Hallelujah Harvest Festival

Kids of all ages and adults who still think they are kiddos are invited to FUMC annual Harvest Festival.

Please bring your friends and neighbors on Sunday, October 24th, from 3:00PM – 6:00PM. There’ll be food, games, a bounce house, rides, a petting zoo, kid crafts, an antique red truck for fall family pictures, and much more. One of the favorite events is the cake walk, so bring your appetite.

Kids don’t forget to wear a costume for the costume contest! All activities, games, ride and entertainment are & fellowship for all ages. All activities are FREE for everyone. Concessions will food and treats available for purchase.

Trick or Treating

It’s always been a huge tradition in our area to decorate our homes. The most famous is our Christmas Time with all the finery. But Halloween comes in a close second! So decorate your yards, put on a scary or cute costume, and hit the sidewalks.

Your neighbors are expecting you and will be passing outs lots of candy and yummies. Any one with a light on at their front door is fair game so go ring those doorbells!

Hope y’all have a great week and get out to enjoy this wonderful weather! I can be reached at mcfbherald@yahoo.com.
