Here's what happened that magical night
This was the first time Annie and Bill, celebrity spokespersons for, sent an invitation into the community to celebrate tree nuts in Canada, yes, but specially to celebrate the red oaks trees in the Red Oak Forest of Constance Bay Village. Annie and Bill at the door on Halloween(They thank Vera Jones for suggesting the idea of the celebration to them).

Well, it was a success! And our Halloween Greenman agrees ( see Mike Harding's history of the Green Man)
Annie and Bill stood by yhr front door to welcome our trick-or-treaters. Now, we had lots of treats to give out, some nutty and some just sweet. From about 6PM to nearly 9PM, some 25 ghouls, goblins, elfs, imps, soldiers, ballerinas, ghosts and other scay characters came a-knocking. We were quick with the treats I can tell you! Some of the tricks could have been mighty scary.

Annie and Bill (and Henry and Vera), too) are already thinking about next Halloween.
