The Madrona Community Council has been hosting a Halloween celebration for the little ghosts and goblins of Madrona since 1995, and this year is no exception. A kickoff event at the Shelterhouse at the Madrona playground will take place between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. on the 31st, and volunteers are needed to provide sweet treats (either candy or baked goods) for the trick-or-treaters. E-mail Stacey Kryman at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer. More info to come on all the Madrona Halloween festivities!
We’re crossing our fingers that the sun makes an appearance for Mayfair tomorrow, but if not, we’ll be there with our rain boots and umbrellas to celebrate anyway! Here’s a reminder of the schedule of events:

Don’t forget to stop by the tennis courts for the Madrona K-8 auction to bid on an amazing list of auction items and enter the raffle to win a trip to Palm Springs!
We can’t wait to see you all there tomorrow!
