2010.11.03 Mary Snyder: Halloween party appreciated

Written by David Green.

I just want everyone who wasn’t at Wakefield Park Saturday, Oct. 23, for the Halloween party, to know you missed out on the best fun for adults and children alike.

The hayride was awesome. It really got your blood pumping. It brought back memories from when I was a little girl in Tennessee.

The haunted house was so much fun. As my granddaughter and a friend led me through, I never screamed so much in my life and it indeed was scary. My granddaughter and I decided to go through the haunted house again, thinking I would not be as scared as the first time. Wrong. I got more scared than the first time. It really was fun and everyone young and old were enjoying themselves.

Thanks to everyone who had a part in not only scaring the older lady, but making me feel young again.

Thanks to the Chamber of Commerce for all the decorations and hard work, and to all who helped with the haunted house and the hay ride. And thank God for the nice weather. I hope you have it again next year. My friend, my granddaughter and I enjoyed everything.

A wonderful, happy time was had by all.
