Fall is in full swing and the snowbirds that left early from up north and the east coast are happy they did. Snow made an early arrival in many states last week. We were lucky that it skipped Ohio because we were still there. We finally headed out on Monday but it will be a couple of weeks before we drive through the entrance to Spring Creek Village. I hope to make it in time to get our flu shots on November 4. Don’t forget to put that date on your calendar, too.
The Halloween Monster Mash on October 31 should be a lot of fun. The ticket sellers are ready and waiting for you. Check with Edith Davidson, Millie Pearson, Faye Ellingwood, Bev Waterhouse, Karen Ventura, Ruby D’Agostino, Cheryl Schaub, Marilyn McKay, and Carol Owsley. They will also be available at bingo and pot luck and at the door. If you buy them by the October 22 you will be eligible for an extra prize drawing. You are asked to bring finger foods to share and the hosts, Jackie and Peter Jerva, will be providing wings, meatballs and other goodies as well. Denny Brown has been hired to provide the entertainment. What a deal for $10. You still have time to come up with a great costume and win a prize.
The tickets for the barbecue on November 10 following the dedication of the Veterans’ Memorial are also available for $5. Please plan on getting them before November 8. The dedication is open to everyone and we hope that all residents will attend.
Libby Smith recently returned to SCV and took her turn as caller at bingo. I understand she did a great job. I don’t know if she brought Mary Merchant luck or if it was the shiny red polish on Mary’s toes. Mary enjoyed a pedicure that day. She went on to win the first special, the letter X, and then took the first half of the 15th game. Vera Stivers won the nine in the corner. Welcome back to Marilyn Roberts who won the cover all portion of the 15th game.
