Double, double toil and trouble … Halloween is in the air at Peninsula Community Library (PCL) and Old Mission Peninsula School (OMPS), who hosted a fabulous Haunted Library and Pumpkin Walk on Saturday, Oct. 27.

The fun event featured a Monster Mash dance in the gym, with DJ Corey Phelps (vice president of the OMP Education Foundation) manning the music, along with a photo area by photographer Scott Conaway, and a “haunted library tour” with Witch Wendy (PCL director Vicki Shurly) and library crew.

The spooky event also included a pumpkin walk through the woods, with more than 200 pumpkins carved by OMPS students lining the Karyl Tompkins Memorial Trail. Tompkins passed away at the age of 14 on May 25, 1966, after a lengthy illness. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Tompkins, Karyl was a student at OMPS at the time of her death. My husband Tim Boursaw was part of the OMPS class in the 1960s who helped to create the memorial trail in her honor.

The pumpkins were donated by Cory Holman, who runs Cory’s Pumpkin Patch on the historic Holman Farm on Center Road.

After the pumpkin walk, the crowd of kids and grownups gathered at the outdoor amphitheatre to hear Witch Wendy and tell not-too-spooky stories. Here are a few photos from the evening.
