The last day of October came and went with the witches’ brooms sweeping another Halloween away until next year. Trick-or-treat youngsters made the rounds but not nearly in such crowds as there were a few years ago. Most reported a dozen or so children looking for the treats. A Halloween party at the Grange Hall in Rumford Center reported about 16 attendees and perhaps an equal number of adults. There was a drawing for a $10 McDonald's gift card as a door prize and the winner was Tameara Webber.
