Evil Wind, or Leaf Blower?

Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'all's neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell

The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty-thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the Thriller

(Evil laugh)

Rock You Like a Hurricane

Hurricane Sandra-Dee merely skimmed Beverly, but she managed to leave some damage in her wake.  Lynch Park kept it's trees, but some are without many of their branches and leaves.  DPS has been here all day cleaning up, making it safe for patrons to enjoy the park. 

Unfortunately, it is still not safe enough to have our beloved Halloween Costume Party in the Carriage House tonight. 

We had a lot of fun, spine-chilling activities planned to get you into the holiday spirit.  We'll keep them locked in our secret party vault until next year... mwah, ha ha ha ha!

Be safe, be kind and keep it spooky, Beverly.

Hurricane Sandy, go away... we want to party at the Carriage House on Tuesday, October 30 from 5:00-8:00pm!  We are waiting until Sunday to make the official determination on whether or not big, bad Frankenstorm will force us to cancel our first ever Halloween celebration.  Stay tuned AND until that time, enjoy these pics of Jean and Gail making their crafty decorations...

Bruce reported that he has landed safely in NC, but it is a little gloomy there.  Looks like he is going to experience Hurricane Sandy at the beginning AND end of his vacation!  Bummer, man. 

The Josh Files - We saw Josh this week!  He is still working as our Enrichment Site Coordinator at the Senior Center on Monday and Tuesday nights and we met there to discuss the Octobfest shindig with him on Tuesday night.  He was looking casual, wearing a rugby sweater and jeans, definitely different than his usual ranger gear.  He likes his new job and guess what he's doing a lot of?  Painting!  Good thing Bruce taught him how... We really miss Josh and even though he's not here, we still yell for him to change the water bottle, distribute flyers to the schools, take out the recycling, waaaaah!  He reported on Facebook that he wants to get a dog, but I think I successfully talked him out of it... Bill might have helped, too.  His advice was actually far more sage than mine... he is actually an excellent dog owner, I was not as good!

That's all for now, folks.  Keep your fingers crossed that Sandy gets blown out to sea so we can scare your socks off on Tuesday!

Top Shelf

We're in denial, but it's true... Josh Melanson has left the building.

We have to start opening the office, cleaning up and well, building our own shelves now. The Herrick House will heretofore be the recipients of Josh's many talents and I must admit, we are really looking forward to hearing about free lunches and happy hour hang times with his Head Ranger-in-crime, Jocelyn Cassola!

We will even dedicate a portion of the blog to Josh, so we can let you all know what he's up to in the outside world. We had a little meatball sub party today (Josh's fave sandwich) to celebrate. Check out the pictures, below...








Bon voyage, Joshie, we are really going to miss you...

The Best Part of Waking Up

When I walked into the office this morning I was greeted by this...

Good morning, good afternoon, and good evening.  Make it the best Thursday that has ever been.

Foliage Tour

Stardate: October 1, 2012... the countdown to Halloween has begun! I'm considering dressing as the Beverly Delorean and Stella has chosen Medusa as her costume. If anyone else in the office has made their decisions, they're not sharing.

We are holding our first annual Halloween Costume Party in the Carriage House on October 30, 5:00-8:00pm!  So, after you have done the Downtown Trick or Treat - sponsored by Beverly Main Streets (4:00-6:00pm), head down to Lynch Park and enjoy more Halloween fun like facepainting and Haunted Carriage House tours!

Since summer ended, we have celebrated three birthdays, Bruce, Josh and Jean's.  Here are the pics to prove it...

And then it was Jean's big day...

The Skev Report - Well, there's nothing to report because he's been "too busy" to visit the office.  Unbelievable!  If you see him, tell him to drop by Bev Rec!  We'll be sure to give a full and detailed account.
