The center had a number of strange looking visitors for Halloween. Barb Bitner came as Pebbles of the Flintstones, Dorothy Conyers delivered meals as a witch complete with a big nose and teeth, and Sue Clough came as a baseball player with her bat and ball. Residents of Hilltop Manor joined the center for Halloween. There was a parade after singing pumpkin carols. Shirley Bowers was the accompanist.
