October: Halloween and Oktoberfest
“This month has now dawned
As we set into the Autumn breeze
Into the dark blustery night
We watch the falling of each leaf be swooped from the trees…”
October Blooms – Poem by Melissa Patty
As always Kathleen’s calendar of events is full special dinners, a tour up the Dalmatian Cost of Croatia, Oktoberfest and Halloween
