We had a fun day October 30 with our new "Thrillls, Chills and Tommyknockers" Halloween event.  It was so much fun we plan to do it again next year. A special thanks go out to our many volunteers and to the Georgetown Divide Regulators who have done so much to add to the excitement, authenticity and fun of our special events this year.  We also want to thank Boa Vista Orchards for their generous donation of apples for our younger visitors to the Spooktacular. Check out Boa Vista Orchards when you go to Apple Hill. They're open year-round.
