Wind howling through the trees as leaves swirled in the street set the scene for an abundance of Halloween activities these past two days.

Sunday evening found the steps of the Powderhorn Clubhouse crowded with scampering ghosts, witches, and anything you could imagine. The Joker, alias seven year-old Vinnie Scott, was there and gives us his take on Halloween.

Trick-or-Treating Powderhorn style was done on schedule with trolley rides leaving on the hour. Shannon Garris thought it was a great idea.

Sunday afternoon at Westview Healthcare Center, over two hundred and fifty kids streamed down the aisles that had residents parked on each side. Yvette Voogd said it makes the residents smile.

Sunday night took on a whole new meaning with Fright Night at Holy Name School. It wasn't for the faint of heart as many a wee one came out of the haunted house crying in in fear. Holy Name principal Mary Legler explains.

Monday, the folks at First United Methodist Church held a Trunk-or-Treat in the church parking lot. Reverend Don Derryberry shares Holy Name's perspective on Halloween, besides it's just as much fun for the adults as for the kids.

Outside Sheridan Manor a line of costumed characters was waiting for the doors to be unlocked. At the front was ten year-old Christian Rivers explaining what he was.

Sugarland Ridge wasn't about to be outdone. Residents lined the hallways holding big bowls of candy. Candy plus games, Executive Director, 'Little Red Riding Hood', that is Theresa Hamilton notes, its fun for all.

Betty Geertz lives at Sugarland Ridge with her husband and still is young at heart.

Busy times around Sheridan at Halloween.
