Halloween is Happening!

It seems just days after we deliver pumpkins on the doorsteps of our beloved friends and clients, the days fly by, bringing us from early October to Halloween. And we all know how we fly through the holidays following that!

This year we are hoping to savor each holiday, as this is a particularly special season for us. We are moving to our new expanded offices on Laurel Street just in time to enjoy the holidays from our new vantage point. We hope to be into our new home by the time the holiday lights are turned on in San Carlos on Nov. 30. We hope you’ll come see us soon! 

Here are a few spooky events you can enjoy as the days grow crisper and the nights dark and chilly. Be aware, the Halloween fun begins this Friday!
