our Evening in Excellence

1 Nephi 17:41
41 And he did straiten them in the wilderness with his rod; for they ahardened their hearts, even as ye have; and the Lord straitened them because of their iniquity. He sent fiery flyingbserpents among them; and after they were bitten he prepared a way that they might bechealed; and the labor which they had to perform was to look; and because of the dsimplenessof the way, or the easiness of it, there were many who perished.

Halloween Party

Our ward gathered on the night before Halloween.
All were encouraged to wear costumes.
The Youth prepared activity centers for the children.
There was a bean bag toss.
There was bowling.
Lots of yummy food to eat.
Neighbors and friends coming together.
The kids loved the pumpkin walk.
A grandmother pretends she doesn't know who you are on Halloween.  ~Erma Bombeck
When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.
~Author Unknown
'Tis the night - the night
Of the grave's delight,
And the warlocks are at their play;
Ye think that without
The wild winds shout,
But no, it is they - it is they.
~Arthur Cleveland Coxe
Lots of helping hands made this evening a big success.
There is a child in every one of us who is still a trick-or-treater looking for a brightly-lit front porch. ~Robert Brault
One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place.
~Emily Dickinson
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.  ~George Carlin
If a man harbors any sort of fear, it makes him landlord to a ghost.  ~Lloyd Douglas
Once in a young lifetime one should be allowed to have as much sweetness as one can possibly want and hold.  ~Judith Olney
Backward, turn backward,
O Time, in your flight
make me a child again
just for to-night!
~Elizabeth Akers Allen
On Halloween, witches come true;
Wild ghosts escape from dreams.
Each monster dances in the park....
~Nicholas Gordon
Clothes make a statement.  Costumes tell a story.  ~Mason Cooley

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.
