Here, one of the many young families, who got out for the Sat., Oct. 30 neighborhood "Trick or Treating," were Susan and Jeff Sumner (standing). For Andrew (eight-months-old in stroller), it was his first Halloween, while Eric (2 1/2-years old) was old enough to appreciate all of the candy even more. NEIGHBORHOOD 'TRICK OR TREAT' -- Lynnia (I-r) and Hayden Jones, of Kanawha Drive, came into Glenville to "Trick or Treat" on Halloween evening. They came dressed as "The Headless Horseman" -- a very scary character --- and the Fairy Princess --- a not so frightening figure. The kids enjoyed the candy. Their parents are Todd and Rebecca Jones. Sec. B: Life-styles-- The Gilmer Social Scene The Glenville Democrat WWW. vii Glen villeNe ws. corn ; I also bring closure to them.

Just have them write a paragraph about what they'd like Santa Claus to bring down their chimneys on this Decemb i 24 and CONTRASTING BREAKFAST place under their Christmas trees! These "Letters to Santa" only need to be two-or-three sentences or para- graphs long and be signed by the child's first name and age ONLY. (With all of the crimes going on na- tionwide involving innocent children, we editors don't want any more infor- mation about the child than their first name and age.) Their requests to Santa will be printed in the Dec. 23 issue of this newspaper. These "Letters to Santa" are tradi- tionally cheerful, humorous, cute, and heartfelt. Most importantly, they give the children an opportunity to write, to accomplish a goal and to have their Christmas list to Santa published. In addition, teachers may want to post them on your bulletin boards in order to make your classroom Yule- tide decorations more special and ex- citing for the kids. Again, the deadlineis Thurs.,Dec.

STYLES -- In the photograph to the left and sitting at the left table, Bud Foster, of Glenville, enjoys reading the morning's newspaper and spending a few quiet moments to himself. By contrast, Nancy McVaney, sitting at the table on the right, is immersed in a fast and friendly conversation with others attending the Annual Community Seniors Thanksgiving Breakfast at McDonald's on Thurs., Nov. 25. SHE 'CAN'T WAIT' --- Little Clara Junkin (far right) can't wait to taste test one of the many delicious entrdes on the large food table at the 33 Country Club, located about five miles east of Glenville on SRs 33/119, on Thanksgiving evening. As a tradition of this local night spot, owners Bub and Karen Shackleford (not pictured) open the restaurant at about 5 p.m. on every Thanksgiving, so that if any Gilmer Countian didn't get a gigantic meal that day, he or she can that evening in the 33 Country Club's warm social setting in the nostalgic, old skating rink building. Standing in line next to Clara are from right to left: Ryan Tomblin, Wanda Tomblin and Ruth McHenry.
