Well it’s time to retire the flip flops & break out the hoodies. How many people turned the heat on this weekend?

It’s that time of year again so Oct 17 the Friends of the Library will be hosting All You Can Eat Chili & Chicken Soup Dinner from 3 pm – 7 pm @ the Ashley Park. On the menu is Chili, Chicken Soup, Hot dogs & Desserts. Prices are $8.00 for adults, $4.00 for kids ages 6 to 12. Ages 5 and under are free. Chili & Soup will be available for carryout $5.00 per quart.

On Nov 11 Veterans Day from 10 am til noon free refreshments will be served for all local Veteran’s @ the Library. I have said it & will say it again Ashley is very lucky to have the Library & I hope to see everyone @ the Chili & Chicken Soup Dinner.

Town Wide Yard Sales will be Oct 10 & you have until Thursday Oct 8 to get on this list. There is no charge to be on the list.

Maps will be provided & available @ PoPeck’s & Ashley Marketplace. Ashley Flea market is Oct.10 @ 7 am & a few people have signed up for spaces @ the park for their yard sales in addition to the Flea Market.

Congratulations to our Secretary Erin & husband Mike Steward on the birth of their beautiful baby girl Eliza Jeanne.

Trunk or Treat will be @ the United Methodist Church on Oct 31 from 6pm to 8pm.Cookies & Hot Chocolate will be available inside & lots of candy outside. Everyone is welcome to set up & do trunk or treat @ the Methodist Church.

I will be there with the tailgate down & dressed in costume to hand out candy to the kids. This will be a great evening of fun for kids & adults. I really think I like this idea better than going door to door its like one stop shopping.
