Hi Y’all, Happy Halloween
What a beautiful weekend. I hope that you did something fun, even if it was going out to work in your yard, or decorate for Halloween.
“Thirsty Thursday” was a big success with 25 people enjoying six different pizzas (donations accepted), handmade by John Relyea and Bobbie Trinkett. For those of you who don’t know what Thirsty Thursday is, it replaces “Wine-Down-Wednesday” (making room for Bingo in December). It is neighbors and friends getting together for a social hour followed by a potluck meal, on Thursdays starting at 5 p.m. at Chillas Hall in Lanark Village. All are welcome!
This weekend will be a busy one for Lanark. The Lanark Village Golf Club is having a Halloween Tournament on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 10 a.m. It will be a “spooky” good time on our six-hole golf course. Golfers and spectators can enjoy hot dogs, Bloody Marys and other various drinks (for a donation). Contact Nola for more information at [email protected] or call 850.528.7662. Wearing a Halloween costume may get you a prize.
After the tournament, go home, take a nap, and get ready for the adult “Halloween Monster Bash” at Chillas Hall. DJ Greg K. will be entertaining us with some killer dance tunes to “boo”gie the night away. Starts at 7:30 p.m. until ?. Bring your favorite bone-chilling beverage with monster munchies to share and $7 donation. Put that costume on (or not) and come party with us. Everybody is invited.
These events always take a lot of work! If you would like to help “please,” email me at the email at the end of this article for either or both events.
The Big Yard Sale Is Coming! Friday through Sunday, Nov. 4 to 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., (Sunday will start later). We have a large collection of new stuff and some stuff you wished you had bought last time. So drive up Heffernan and at the stop sign you will see us. The proceeds go completely to the Lanark Village Golf Club for maintaining “Lanark Village’s Front Yard” and the heliport landing. Also, our lawnmower is dying and we will need a new one Soon. If you can volunteer to help with the yard sale, that would be great.
The “trash can” ordinance has once again been put aside. This was not on the agenda for the county commissioners’ meeting on Oct. 18 after being canceled on Oct. 4. Maybe it will be on the agenda for Nov. 1.
Coffee Time is going strong. With snowbirds returning, there are lots of new people to meet. Monday through Friday, 9 to 11 a.m. at Chillas Hall on Heffernan. All Are Welcome.
The St. James Lanark Volunteer Fire Department still needs volunteers. You may contact Robert Amick, [email protected] or Eric Grajales, 407.757.6997 to sign up.
