Our biggest Trunk or Treat/ Halloween Party yet. We anxiously tracked the weather all day. The radar showed storms hitting us probably during the event. My Co-chairman Debby Klunk and I then agreed. Always better to be safe than sorry.
So we had to change things up a bit. We moved our treat walk, basket raffles and snacks inside. Instead of walking down the ball diamond or along the road at the trunks of our participants. The participating trunks moved into the gym and decorated their areas and tables. The kids could then walk around the gym and get a treat from each spot.
We had 22 Trunks total. Every kid left with enough candy to keep the dentists in business.
Thank you so much to all who participated with trunks. Thank you to all who helped us at the party and with clean-up as well as those that baked for the treat walk.
Many thanks to Jason King and the Center for American Archeology for always letting us use the gym for any event we are having.
A huge shout out to Chuck Titus who goes above and beyond to help us get everything running smoothly.
This was our 28th year for the Halloween party. Also Debby Klunk and my 28th year to be in charge of this.
We still get excited and enjoy it just as much now as we did when we first began this. We hope to keep it going for many years to come.
Miss Calhoun Lexi, Jr. Miss Calhoun Reagan, Little Miss Harlow and Little Mr. Braxton attended the party as Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, Cruella and a Dalmatian.
Lexi & Regan also picked their favorite Trunk for First Place Mayor Wade and James and Second Place Jen Fanning and Family.
Saturday morning the party committee held a bake sale at the Landing. So many people baked for it and lots of people bought some sweet treats. Thank you Terry, Teresa, Kayla and Amy for not only inviting us to have our bake sale their but for being so accommodating. Thanks Emily Clowers for always being my helper.
Trick-or-treating in the village of Kampsville will be Sunday, October 31 from 6 to 8.
We haven’t yet had Halloween so bringing up Christmas seems a little early. Don’t forget to mark your calendar’s for the Kampsville Christmas party Sunday December 19. More details to follow closer to the event.
Warrior Pride also held a Halloween Carnival Sunday afternoon at the Fairgrounds in Hardin. They also had a wonderful turn out. I think the two events complemented each other since everyone was already in their costumes for that one which ended at 4 and ours began at 4. Everyone had the opportunity to enjoy both.
Ed Johnson, Amiah and Channing enjoyed Youth Duck Season Saturday morning. I don’t know how the hunting was but the memories they are making will last a lifetime with those kids.

Our hearts are heavy here in our little village. In the early hours of Friday morning we lost one of our residents Mitchell Holland in a car crash. Mitchell had the prettiest dark brown eyes and always a grin on his face. He also would step up and help anyone who needed his help. A young dad, son and brother went way to soon. Please keep Caroline and Rowan in your prayers, as well as his parents Peggy and Mikey, Mac and Angie and his siblings.
Please also keep Bob and Sandy Gardner in your thoughts and prayers on the loss of their nephew.
Please add Zel Blumenberg to your prayers this week and continue prayers for Eileen Gardner, Joyce Blumenberg, Darren Kress, Amy Roth, Joe Gress, Kurt Roth, Jim Hill, Raymond Sievers, Isabel McGlaughin, Bill Schumann, Jerry Crader, Kathryn Chapman, Mark Bowers, Linda Herkert, Bruce Williams and Joanne Beiker.
