In the Halloween spirit
Six-year-old Sophie Laney has been preparing for Halloween for some time. Her home at 609 Frazier has plenty of pumpkins, cornstalks and Halloween characters on sticks. Halloween will be celebrated in downtown Valley Falls Oct. 31 with a 6 p.m. parade, a “Trunk or Treat” on Broadway, and a decorated pumpkin contest. Sophie is a first-grader and the daughter of Sheana and Jake Kozanecki.
A bit of fall decor
A scattering of pumpkins and gourds has added a spark of fall color and decor at the entrance to Valley Falls the past couple of weeks and brought a word of appreciation from Mayor Charles Stutesman at the last council meeting. The fall produce is provided by Hali Montgomery, who along with her stepfather, Rex Foley, sells garden produce under the name of Spring Fever Farm. Hali said she got the idea when she saw Josh Funk and Larry Martin painting the welcome sign.
Spring Fever Farm operates a market from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Petro every Sunday. This coming Sunday will be their last for the season.Hali and her husband, Dan, reside north of Denison. They have two children, Brantly, 11, and Emma, 7.
The welcome sign was a gift a few years ago from a friend to many here, Joe Dan “Pop” Guthrie, of Mt. Vernon, Texas.
