As the rain falls, the leaves turn, and the flowers fade-
Ashland begins to decorate. I think you’ve often heard me say that our
town on Halloween looks like a movie set, and it’s obvious right now that set
directors are hard at work. Our old
houses are perfect back-drops to jack-o-lanterns and ghosts hung from the porch
columns. Have you found a costume yet?
