FUUSN Fun Night Halloween Party You are cordially invited to an evening of food and fellowship in the Parish Hall on October 26, the Friday before Halloween. We gather at 5:30 p.m. to eat and have a good time together until around 8:00 p.m. There will be a Halloween costume competition for the kids (and any adults who want to join in). Pizza and soft drinks will be served, but you are encouraged to bring a tasty side dish or dessert to share. You can come for the whole evening, or for whatever time works best for you. If you do plan to come, please let Pat Rohan know at jprohan@verizon.net so we know how many pizzas to order. But even if you don’t know until the last moment, you are still welcome.

If you would like to bring some games, or if you have a favorite Fun Night activity, or if you would like to bring an instrument for a jam or singalong, then also let Pat know. We could use some volunteers before and after, so it would be great to hear from you if you have a hand to lend!

If you would like to bring along friends who have never set foot in FUUSN, they are welcome to join. FUUSN Fun Night seems like a great opportunity to bring new folks to FUUSN. Spread the word!
