ICS - Update October 7, 2010

Greetings ICSers! We went from Summer to Fall overnight, eh? TThe frost is definitely on the pumpkin.

Last month's meeting went Ok, with Norman Prentiss doing the presentation. Norman did a reading from one of his short stories- "Storybook Forest", a tale based on his recollections of the "Enchanted Forest". That was one of my favorite get-aways with the parents. So simple- nowadays kids would be bored in no time flat. But danged if it wasn't pretty cool to me.

We didn't have much of a business meeting. When we started, we only had 10 people, and 4 of them were board members. By the end of the evening attendance had crawled up to 15.

As you hopefully know- October is our ANNUAL HALLOWEEN PARTY. Once again we'll be having Greg Mank as guest speaker, talking on the original "Island of Lost Souls". Bring along a dish for the potluck supper. Tom P and I will handle the decorations, Dave W will be bringing festive table cloths and we hope to have our usual nice spread! And of course- movies from dusk to dawn!

October also brings a lot of horror movies on TCM. Mike Schilling was nice enough to send this list to me. A lot of Hammer in this list! Get out your popcorn, crawl into your snuggie, and watch some cook ghoul flicks!
