Before I tell you about the upcoming events, let me remind you that Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend at 2 a.m. on Sunday 11/4. You should turn your clocks back an hour before you retire on Saturday night. (Fall Back, Spring Ahead!) Your Smart Phones will automatically adjust the time.  If you don’t want to be late or miss the events on Sunday, remember to adjust your clocks.  Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t remind you to change the batteries in your smoke or carbon monoxide detector.

Happy Halloween! Following are the final series of Halloween decorations shared for the year.
