Ray Bradbury’s The Halloween Tree

 

This is one of those occasions when you need to borrow somebody’s kid.

hall-treeTHE HALLOWEEN TREE

Written by Ray Bradbury
Adapted and Directed by Amanda Kellock

On Halloween night, five friends meet up to go trick-or-treating. But their best friend, Joe Pipkin, is too sick to go. He tells them to meet at The House, an old, deserted place in the ravine that none of them have ever dared to visit on Halloween night, but when they arrive, instead of Joe they encounter a mysterious man named Carapace Clavicle Moundshroud… What follows is an epic journey into The Undiscovered Country to find out the hidden secrets of Halloween and to save Joe Pipkin.

JOIN US FOR MonSFFA BBQ THIS SUNDAY!

NEXT CLUB EVENT IS THIS WEEKEND!

SUNDAY, JULY 17

MonSFFA’s Summer Barbecue-in-the-Park

10:30AM-4:30PM; Parc Angrignon, Lasalle (Angrignon Metro)

All Club Members, their Families and Friends Invited!

Bring your Own Food and Drink; Club will Supply Cooking Grill.

MonSFFA has scheduled its traditional summer Barbecue-in-the Park this year for Sunday, July 17. In the event of a forecast of rain on that date, we’ll bump festivities to the following Sunday, July 24. (If the skies seem suspect on the morning of the 17th, check the MonSFFA Web site—MonSFFA.ca—for any eleventh-hour bulletins regarding postponement, or not, of the event.)

We take this occasion to extend a most cordial invitation to all club members, and their families and friends, to join us in the  park this coming Sunday.

We’ll gather at about 10:30-11:00AM under or nearby our usual stand of trees in  Parc Angrignon, Lasalle (Angrignon Metro). You’ll find us behind the Metro/bus station and just a short walk from the parking lot adjacent the now-shuttered “Farm”, or petting zoo (see map, below).

Bring your own food and drink; MonSFFA  will supply a small cooking grill. We usually commandeer a couple of picnic tables for the day, but you may wish to cart along a folding chair of your own, or a picnic blanket, and perhaps a card or board game, ball, or Frisbee. And don’t forget your sunscreen!

The printed version of Warp 95 will be available for distribution at this club event.

Do join us for a pleasant afternoon of easy conversation, refreshing drink, and tasty food amongst fine company!
