Halloween Party and Christmas Dinner

Friends, see an email I received from Rita Higgins in Bridgeview...

Our 1st Annual Pig Roast was a great success!  The community sure came through, for The Bridgeview Community Outreach Program inc.!  We'd like to invite the community to two of our upcoming events:  our Halloween Party on October 25th and our Christmas Dinner on December 6th.  Both events need to have kids registered early, in order to have a chance to win prizes, get candy, and presents.  It's much appreciated if you could post these up! THANK YOU!
