Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope you will all have a chance to have some fun.

The Carver Memorial Library Crafters’ “Stash” Sale Oct. 22 had crafters lined up at the door! The Community Center was full of fabric and yarn goodies with knowledgeable crafters to help out. Congratulations, ladies, on starting a fresh event! We hope you do it again next fall.

The annual Basket Silent Auction fundraiser at the library is being organized. If you would like to put together a themed basket such as chocolates, pet supplies, gardening necessities, craft supplies, or one of your own ideas, please bring it to the library by Nov. 11. The auction will start soon after until just before Christmas. And thank you in advance!

First Congregational Church Women’s Fellowship will be sponsoring a Holiday and Fall Fair on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There promises to be all kinds of crafts, a silent auction, books, baked goods, jams and jellies, used items in “Grandma’s Attic” and fall and Christmas décor. Sounds like something not to be missed!

The First Congregational Church Missions Committee will hold a “Beans and Bread” takeout meal for Hurricane Ian relief, also on Saturday, Nov. 5, as part of the Holiday Fair. They will  be selling pints of baked beans and a variety of breads to go toward relief and recovery efforts in Florida and throughout the South.
