a "Thriller" Haunted Housefeaturing Michael Danforth as Michael Jackson.Smock House, built in 1868, and Morback House, older than time itself, will provide the backdrop for a very thrilling Haunted Halloween.

On a serious note, the date for The Sherwood Historical Society's Annual Membership Meeting has been set for November 30, from 4:30 to 6:30. We will have election of officers, a projected budget, and discussion about next year's projects. Cookies and punch will be provided. You should be receiving a Historical Society newsletter soon which will include your membership dues notice for 2010. (You will notice the dues have remained the same; as a matter of fact, they've never been increased. Do you think it's time for an increase, or is this a particularly bad time for an increase. Let us know what you think.)
On a lighter note, this weekend is your last chance, Friday and Saturday, at 7 p.m. to see an original work of our own: A June Reynolds Play being performed at the Frogpond Grange, 27350 SW Stafford Rd., Wilsonville, OR 97070. "A Ferry Tale, Wilsonville, Oregon's Transportation Town" is a play performed by the Wilsonville Theater Company about Wilsonville's early years. Tickets are $10 for Adults, and $7 for children & Seniors. Former Mayor of Sherwood Clyde List is a prominant member of the cast.
We'll see you soon. Brewhahahaha! Polly Blankenbaker 503-625-6435
