Are you ready for an evening of terror? Well, it’s not really terror; more like scary fun since it is kid-friendly! Come to the Martin Farms K-9 Clip Pet Grooming Haunted Hayride Saturday evening, October 15. This is an annual event that all the kids around here look forward to each year. This year promises to be bigger and better than ever! The weather looks perfect for a nail-biting hayride through the woods and out past the cemetery. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy music and chow down on hot dogs provided by Francisco Presbyterian Church. Hot chocolate and coffee along with delicious treats and meatless chili will also be available. A favorite for everyone are the marshmallows roasted over the bonfire. The fun starts at 7:30 pm and will go till around 10:00 pm. Admission is only $3 for adults and $1 for kids 17 and under. Please bring a canned food item for our Northwest Stokes Food Pantry and all proceeds from the sale of the hot dogs, drinks and treats go toward the Francisco School Project. Mike and Amy’s farm is located on 1175 Asbury Road. (Google for directions). Bring the kids and grandma and grandpa and have a fun filled evening!

The Francisco Ladies Auxiliary will have their Fall Bingo event Saturday, October 22, at the Francisco Community Building. The cost is $20 for 20 games. Hot dogs with all the fixins will be ready at 6:00 pm and the games start at 7:00 pm. Prizes will be fall related items. Hope to see you there!

The Annual Goin-Goins Reunion will be held at the Francisco Community Building Sunday, October 23. For those out-of-towners, the community building is located across from Francisco School on Highway 89 west. Bring your favorite covered dish and lunch will be served at 1:00 pm. Join the family for an afternoon of food and fellowship.

Ivadene Overby Johnson is doing well following heart surgery last month. Please continue to keep her in your prayers.

Please continue to pray for Jennifer Overby, R.W. and Alice Goins. Lingering health issues are still present.
