There’s an old saying around here that winter starts the day after Halloween. Unfortunately, it appears that Mother Nature forgot the schedule this year and painted our orange and yellow world white last weekend. That’s why The Chamber would like to help make sure everyone knows the schedule for all the fun festivities leading up to Halloween this year!
