Our featured story, “The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything”, will go home with every child. If older siblings attend there will be other more age appropriate books for them. (Local Yachats businesses will be open downtown for Trick or Treating prior to the event, from 4-6 pm.) We do hope you will join us for a spooky good time.
