The following press release comes from Jo Mouse from the “White” house, AKA Jo White.  Jo is known for her volunteer work with the Edgewood Community Library and for her work with young people in the Town of Edgewood and the surrounding community in producing, directing and financing the production of melodramas through many years.  The press release is self-explanatory.  Don’t miss a great celebration.

What do you do when you have free food for 500 people and a Nature Park filled with games, costume parties, terrific animals, and the first Edgewood Idol contest?  You go to the first Fall Extravaganza at Wildlife West Nature Park in Edgewood, Saturday October 30th from 12:00 to 6:00, all for free.  Did we mention FREE!  There will be games of chance like Bingo, a blast from the past with kid carnival games.  Tickets will be sold for these for a very small fee.  If you are having the economic crunch everyone is, this is the place to be.  JR’S BBQ is supplying the food, like turkey legs, corn on the cob, yummy!  Wal-Mart is giving candy for little trick or treaters.  Edgewood F.O.O.L.S. Friends of our Library Society will have free books to give away and Edgewood Leos and Lions will host the Edgewood Idol contest with trophies and prizes.  For a donation, you can have your photo taken by that noted local photographer, Roger Holden. Raffle tickets and a silent auction will round out the day’s activities.  It is tough to feed the park’s animals in the winter, so if you would care to make a donation, it would be gladly taken. There is a new baby deer Velcro ®, (because she sticks to you,) and a new baby raccoon.  This is an old fashioned Fall Festival in the style of sixty years ago when folks came together for a good cause and had a great family time.  Mark your calendar now and don’t miss out on this great time.
