Monday Afternoon Club holds Halloween party

Monday Afternoon Club resumed its 2013 year with a Halloween party on Oct. 7 at the home of Pat Thompson. This year’s theme is Hoosier Hodgepodge.

Costumed members and guests enjoyed a fall buffet while being entertained with ghost stories of Indiana. Lucretia (Kitty) Lawson narrated the home fires of the Hackler family in Odon, Griselda (Diane) Gill told of a visit from the dead in Paoli, Esmerelda (Sally) Young relived the ghostly hollow in Wheatland, and Elphaba (De) Odell told of a haunted railroad in Sullivan.

Commentator Wilomenia (Kim) Wagner gave four rules to keep supernatural elements from one’s home: don’t move into a house with a history; don’t jump into a “really good deal”; don’t buy a home that has had 10 owners in the past year; don’t move into a house next to a cemetery or used as a funeral home.

Members present were Vicki Bubalo, Sue Colbert, Martha Corn, Helen Dashnaw, Sue Garrett, Diane Gill, Connie Gray, Carol Gregory, Kathleen Harris, Maxine Killion, Kitty Lawson, Bonnie Miles, Betty Norris, De Odell, Jodi Parsons, Pat Thompson, Maggie Tuggle, Kim Wagner, Elaine Wellman, Sally Young, Flo Cavanaugh, Janet Goodwin, Sally Hoefling, Sally Humbaugh, Becky Kremp, Pam Scheid, Laurinda Walker, Pat Williamson, Mary Lou Gotwald, Jeanette Graham, Linda Myers, Jan Smith, Mary Jane Wirts, and guests Donna Fitzpatrick, Vicki Hulse, Lisa Moore and Rita Thompson.
