When Lemuel Kittredge came to, he was high, high up, lying in a drafty cage of planks and rusty pipes.

As Halloween is right around the corner, I started pondering on the reason why rats are such a favorite animal in a lot of Halloween folklore and why they’re still such a popular animal to display next to the fibrous spider webs, scream masks and hanging ghosts in the local holiday stores.

I love Halloween and this Valley knows how to do it up right! There are Halloween events all over-some for kids and some for adults-some free and some cost. Some of them are even fundraisers for a good cause. This week we are featuring another Halloween event that is also a fundraiser for Valley Children’s Hospital/Healthcare-a Halloween Bash. The event is being put on by La Visionaria Guild, so we chatted with Dallas Selling, who is the Vice President of the organization and a founding member.
