Rebecca Cline was driving through Ashland the other day on her way to drop off her two daughters at school when she passed by the Hanover Arts and Activities Center. Her daughter, Corinna, looked at the blue-grey clapboards of the old building and said to her mother, “Everything that’s fun begins at HAAC.” I agree Corinna, and aren’t we lucky that Halloween is just a few weeks away? Come dressed in your favorite costume for an evening of spooky music from the Hanover Concert Band, enjoy some treats, and enjoy the parade of ghosts, goblins, fairies, and witches. Maddie Grant came dressed as an iPod last year! The party begins Halloween night- Wednesday, October 31st at 6:00 p.m. Don’t miss it!
