Hurrah for Morgan Mill!

All parents and interested friends are invited to attend the spook and goblins parade in the Morgan Mill Gym on Monday, October 31 at 8:15 am. The invitation sent home to parents reads, "Come prepared to be spookily amused and frightfully entertained." Morgan Mill traditions can put a smile on anyone's face.

The Morgan Mill School held their "A Haunting in the Mill" fall carnival on Saturday night. Reagyn Hattox-Hoag and Jace Moore were crowned queen and king of the carnival. They sold 380 raffle tickets. The PTF want to thank all of the contributors who donated their time, money, or items for the baskets, raffle, and auction. The money raised will be put back into the school. Thanks again.

Debbie Lincoln and Laraine Waughtal, pastor of Morgan Mill United Methodist Church, have returned from an eight day mission trip to Haiti. During their visit they helped to rebuild a church that had been damaged as a result of the earthquake. The team of volunteers also included members from the Bluff Dale Methodist Church. Thank you to all of our volunteers who tirelessly give of their time.

The final football game for the Morgan Mill Mustangs will be Thursday, November 3 against Bluff Dale at Bluff Dale at 6 pm. Town and

Country Bank will provide their annual hot dog appreciation meal before the game. Thanks to all the employees at Town and Country for making this a fun event.

This Saturday, November 5, at the Community Center is the Annual Volunteer Fire Fighters Fundraiser at 6 pm. It is the traditional pie and cake auction that keeps the fire department paying its bills. This year the department has purchased a "new" 2008 truck to be used as a brush truck. The community needs to to fund the equipment that the guys need to put on the truck. It will take approximately $25,000 to purchase the water tank, lights, water pump, emergency flashers, radios, air packs, hoses, nozzles, and other items. The fire fighters will provide all of the labor, but the equipment is very expensive.

This year all of the fixings to go with Gailyn Parker's famous barbeque will be made by wives of the fire fighters. You got a taste of Susan Spindor's potato salad at the appreciation dinner. Diane Stokes, Judy Spindor, Pat Broeder, Miriam Stauffacher and Karen Cantrell have volunteered to make the cole slaw and the beans. It is always fun to see what the bakers of Morgan Mill can create. Of course, Verbie Burns will have her famous chocolate pie. There will be a Morgan Mill Methodist Cookbook, "The Cracked Pot," that has been autographed by all of its contributors in the auction. The big ticket item this year is a large John Deere back-hoe donated by Sandy and Dr. Jim Herbertson. Can you imagine all of the projects that you could accomplish around your place with such a machine? Come be a part of Morgan Mill and its one-of-kind pie and cake auction.
