October Happenings

Here we are in October already! The leaves are starting to fall, we have had beautiful fire pit evenings and the autumn weather is upon us. Do you know how you are going to carve your Halloween pumpkin yet? Get the family together and spend some quality time creating your masterpieces! Put up the fall decorations! Time for the world to change colors. Put away the shorts, tank tops and flip flops and get out the sweaters, jeans and hoodies. The brisk mornings give away to beautiful fall days for us to enjoy.


September was a very busy month at the chamber office! We had the Ambassadors’ Bean Bag Tournament and the Business Boosters held the Irish ‘Toberfest Rib Cookoff event! A big shout out thank you to all the sponsors for both events. We couldn’t have these things without you! Also, thank you to all the volunteers that worked countless hours before, during and after the events. We had great turnouts at both!


October is going to be a little slower in the event category, but we will be gearing up for the Harvest of Savings event on November 19th and the Hometown Christmas on December 3rd. Start planning your Lighted Christmas parade entry now! It will be at 7pm the evening of Friday, December 3rd.


Are your kids getting their Halloween costumes all figured out? Let’s hope for a nice evening for the little trick-or-treaters! The Assembly of God Church will be holding their annual Trunk or Treat again this year in the O’Neill Community Center Parking Lot, on Saturday, October 30th from 2pm to 4pm. Put on your costume, decorate your trunk and have fun right along with the children! While your kids have their costumes on for this event, take them to the O’Neill Public Library for their Annual Library Trick or Treat happening the same day from 3pm to 6pm. See the flyers inside for more information on both events!


The O’Neill Public Library is looking for candy donations and volunteers for their 6th Annual Library Trick or Treat on Saturday, October 30th. If you could help them out, you can get more information by calling the library at 402-336-3110, or stop by and drop of your candy donations!
