Forsyth Court Halloween SafeHouse (Family Fun)
Time: 12:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Location: 2945 Reynolda Rd. Winston Salem NC 27106

Our 2016 Halloween Trick or Treat Safe House will be held on Monday, October 31, 2016 from 2 pm – 5 pm. Our Halloween tradition known as Safe House provides an opportunity for the children of our community to Trick or Treat in a safe not too scary or intimidating environment . Our residents take advantage of the occasion to devote some of their energies toward community service, as well as have some fun. It is often difficult to tell who has more fun: the participants or our residents! Stop by for a warm cup of hot chocolate while enjoying music, our pirate theme, games and activities, fresh popcorn, and a fun Doggie Costume Parade and of course lots of local businesses doling out tons of candy. Volunteers from Wake Forest Spark Program will be here to meet any trick or treaters in costume. Let’s be safe and have fun and warm the heart of a senior citizen! For information or directions, please call Forsyth Court Holiday Retirement at (336) 723-2006.

Location: Reynolda Manor Branch, Forsyth County Public Libary

Forsyth County Genealogical Society MeetingThe Forsyth County Genealogical Society will meet Tuesday, November 1, 2016, in the auditorium of the Forsyth County Public Library-Reynolda Manor Branch, 2839 Fairlawn Dr., Winston-Salem 27106. The social period will begin at 6:30 pm, and the program at 7:00 pm. All meetings are free and open to the public and all are welcome to attend. This month our speaker will be Larry McRae, FCGS member and retired Appalachian State professor. His topic is the Battle of Moore’s Creek Bridge, a significant Revolutionary War battle that occurred in early 1776 about 15 miles north of Wilmington. It was an important battle because the Patriot victory left the South untroubled until 1780, but it also left some mysteries. Be sure to attend to learn about this often overlooked, but very significant, battle. If the Forsyth County Public Schools are closed due to weather, the Society will not meet.
