The Zombie Walk went off well, with over 20 participants.  The children loved getting made up at Gilbert's Place, and loved showing it off; Mike Mazzaro & Nick led the walk; Bellevue Police Auxiliary helped with traffic along the parade route; donations helped the 'Winterize our Kids program.  Thank you to the Mazzaro Family for all their efforts. Picnic in the Park had fewer attendees. Firemen grilled hotdogs, Rob Moore made baked beans, Keith Jesse donated watermelons, and Senior Girl Scouts helped serve, and with signs to encourage people to stop.  Thank you to all who helped and donated.
Discussion was held on whether to continue with the Walk.  It was a smaller crowd, but there was a lot going on.  Keith will ask his co-worker if he's interested in chairing an event next year.  Jeannie would like a photo of presentation to clothing closet to post.

Rob Moore volunteered to help as photographer for events.  Tom Long volunteered his daughter, Amy, to help as well.

NICKLE PLATE RAILROAD CONVENTION EVENT,October 15th.  Shop Bellevue has agreed to host an event to entertain spouses, and event is just a couple of weeks away.
Jeannie suggested stuffing green bags with specials, and a list of stores participating, and demos within the stores.  LeRose will check with Stephanie about the bags the Library was stuffing for us.
BUSINESSES:  Are you interested in getting visitors into your store?  There will be a LOT of ladies looking for something to do between 1 and 5 p.m.  
Consider a feature item, or a short demonstration that you can do that relates to YOUR store.  Eateries, maybe a demo on creative napkin folding; or mix & sample a couple of special drinks for ladies?  Gilbert's -- your class on coffee?  Or sample different smoothie blends?  or..?   Use your imagination, and let us know asap!  Schedule a time between 1 and 3 for demos.  A flyer with demos & times will be supplied; if times overlap, it's okay as not everyone will attend each one.  Call or text LeRose Meadows at 419-217-0346
