Weekend Roundup

I know I am sure glad that the weather is starting to cool down. I know I'm not the only one. I am looking forward to all the fall/halloween events that are coming up starting next week! I will be trying to get those on the calendar this week.


Saturday is the last day of Fire Prevention Week in the City of Montgomery and the last day to visit any Montgomery fire station for fire safety tips and other helpful information. The training is free and open to the public each day, October 7-13, from 10 to 11 a.m. and from 2 to 3 p.m. at all Montgomery fire stations.

Saturday is also Kid's Day at Lifeway Christian Stores. From 11am-1pm, kids will enjoy a free screening of the new VeggieTale's DVD "League of Incredible Vegetables," crafts, snacks and other treats including free coloring books while supplies last. Parents will enjoy special discounts.
 

10 am Lowe's Build & Grow Ghoul Bus
 

The Town of Eclectic's Cotton Festival is also this weekend starting at 7 am featuring live music, vendors, car show, Alabama Cotton Pageant and more. See the link for more info.
