Dear Families & Supporters ~


   I want to invite every one of you to join us Halloween night for our 4th annual, "A Masquerade Eve" at Fairhaven Middle School. Entry is by donation, so it's easy to come be a part. We truly have something for all ages with music, games, yummy hot food and a costume contest. Here is what you can do with the kids Halloween night and have a great time! Come in costume, in mask, or as you are…


    Roma-folk accordion with Bellow Wing starts at 6. Fortune-telling, mask-making, bobbing for apples and the photo booth will be up and going when doors open. After the welcome from stage at 7, we hand it over to lovely youth singer/songwriter Sadie Hoyle. Then we enjoy Irish music from Gallowglass into the night. Phoenix Chicken will host the costume contests at Intermission.  Yes, we have young child, older child, and adult categories!  Donated prizes for the winners.


    Richard Balogh of Rifugio's Country Italian Cuisine will bring his considerable talents to the crowd, offering comforting autumn soup, pumpkin curry scones, donut holes and hot cider. Such a treat. We'll also have a raffle this year, with prizes including a dozen cupcakes from The Mad Batter Cupcakes & Confections, and a family photo session from Eterna Studios…
