A great time was had by all who attended the Halloween Spooktacular at the Bellaire Club. Thanks to those who toiled over cauldrons of spookghetti (Jane E. and Mary F.) and the wonderful cooks who baked up frightful concoctions, more than $340 was raised to help the Bellaire Club! The dinner and dessert auction was a big crowd-pleaser (once again, Fran’s delicious cake took top dollar). Thanks to generous Eleanor (and several others) who shared with their sweets with everybody!

Stay tuned here for details on our plans for a Thanksgiving Feast this month.
