Pam “got uncomfortable” by relating a story of how, in a racing accident, she lost a number of teeth which made her the subject of some mean-girl bullying when she moved to a new school district. Girls called her Pumpkin Head, so to exorcise those demons she wore an appropriate mask as part of Brighton Rotary’s Halloween celebration.
It was all Halloween All the Time for today’s program, with many Rotarians getting into the spirit with scary costumes. Tom Coates won Best in Show; Scott Griffith was Silliest; Terry Gill was Prettiest; and Julie Smith won the Sad category. Well done. Appropriate Halloween radio spots were delivered by Bill, Piet, Karen, Mike McManus, Frank Ed, Jim, Tom Coates, Bob, Jason and Peggi.
Sister Tom won the abbreviated 50-50.
