Haunted forest seeks participants

Greetings ghostly, ghastly ghouls.
This is alliteration, on the off chance you didn’t know. “…the repetition of usu. initial consonant sounds in two or more neighboring words or syllables…” Webster’s Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary says so and I believe them. It is also a suitable seasonal salutation. And it is Pine River Public Library and the Friends of the Pine River Library’s absolute favorite as seasons go. (You would not believe all the spooky stuff stashed in Muriel’s cellar!) As a result of all this festive frenzy, Friends of the Pine River Library are once again hosting The Haunted Forest, October 19 – 20 and 26 – 27 from 6:30 to 10 PM at State 84 and County Road 44 in Pine River. Individuals and groups are invited to decorate and operate a fright scene. The deadline for entering is October 10. Cash prizes will be awarded! And now the disclaimer: Friends committee has final say as to scene content. No decapitated cats, please. I, as a committee member in good standing, might become enraged, or at least mortally, morally miffed. If you are interested, or become interested in the next few days, contact either the calculating Cleo (587-3996) or inimitable Muriel (587-4639).

Hope you have a horribly happy Halloween.
-Browser, the library cat.
