    Halloween Extravaganza

    The Park Stockdale Civic Association is hosting a Halloween Extravaganza for residents from 4-6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29.

    Young children are invited to participate in a costume contest judged by our Station 11 firefighters in the parking lot at 4. Prizes include gift certificates for kids meals donated by Chick-fil-A and handcrafted Halloween donuts from Foster’s.

    Residents can view a fire engine up close.

    At 5, the party shifts to the park pavilion for free hot dogs and chips served up by the board members who organized the event, Roxanne Fackler and John Prince II.

    At 5:30, residents will judge a jack-o’-lantern contest. Sculptors should bring their pre-carved pumpkins and candles to the pavilion by 5.

    Thanks to the early morning lap swimmers for scrubbing clean the top row of pool tiles at the end of the season before the pool is covered.

    Board member Susan Tuttle got things rolling this year by bringing the sponges.
    Resident Pat Nolan, who has been lap swimming here with her husband Bryan for 25 years, said the pool is “the jewel of the community. Cleaning the tiles is a way for the swimmers to give back” to the board of directors and the community.
    Tuttle added, “It was kind of our thank you.”
    She added that the adult lap swimming hours, 6-8 a.m. daily, are not just for proficient swimmers. Adults who are  rehabbing are welcome to just walk the lanes for physical therapy.
    The sponge brigade this year was: Tuttle, the Nolans, Jack Griffith and Michelle Patterson.
