I think we have seen the last of summer finally. The temperatures have remained cool for several days. Even had a frost on Halloween night. Time to get ready for the winter chills. Now the beautiful sunny days really make the colors more vivid. Good days for being outside and taking afternoon walks.
I deem Halloween evening a success even though it was a bit chilly. The rain had ended, and the streets were dry. I ran out of candy early, sorry to say. I enjoy seeing the children in their costumes. Everyone was cute. I saw unicorns, princesses, monsters, of course, and heroes of all sorts. I even had a hippie. I don’t remember a hippie trick-or-treating before, and she was very authentic looking. I know, because I knew some real live hippies at the time. Thanks all you Halloween personalities for sharing your evening with me and for being so polite. I did not have a single snarky visitor.
We had lots of community activities the weekend before Halloween. A community Fall Festival brought out all the kiddos for games and candy. About 400 youngsters were in attendance. All the churches pitched in to make it another successful community effort. We have some fun here in Rector.
Rector Cougars are celebrating a victory over Marked Tree last week, cinching their 2nd straight playoff berth. They will be looking for your support on Thursday. Senior night will be against McCrory and will have significant playoff implications. Come out and cheer them on. Good job team. Keep up the good work.
A reminder that The Rector Community Center will hold its annual Fall Craft Fair on November 23. If you have not been a vendor before and want to jump in this year, or if you have not received your registration form, call Linda Robinson at 870 595-3035 for a registration form. It is a lot of fun for everyone involved. The snack bar will be open for breakfast and lunch. Believe me that alone is worth going in for. Mark your calendars. It is a good place to pick up some unique Christmas gifts and it’s inside so rain or shine we will be fine.
That’s it for this week. I am always updating the Rector website. Please take a look at the web page and let me know if there are updates l or changes that need to be made. I do take suggestions and criticism fairly well. www.rectorarkansas.com . It’s your page for your town, so give me your input.
