Twentieth Anniversary

The 20th Anniversary of Chris & Rick's Halloween celebration was made extra special by the appearance of Clarence and Myrna Swensen. Clarence was one of the original Munchkin Soldiers in the 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz.

Clarence (wearing his Oz soldier uniform) and Myrna handed out candy and posed for pictures with kids and other guests.

Special thanks to Mary Beck and Foster Hagen for playing chauffeur for our special guests.

We had over 200 visitors including kids and adults. Each one got 1 bag of candy and 1 large Hershey bar. A new feature this year was the Yellow Brick Road that led up the walkway to Clarence's station. As in previous years we projected the Wizard of Oz in the early evening hours for the younger kids.

This email was sent by the parents of young Mr. Moore in the far left picture, "Thank you so much. We enjoyed this Halloween more than any other. We can't wait to send this picture and information to our family. You helped create a permanent memory for our son Dominic."

As Usual The House Was Fully Decorated

Master William Budge

Another thing that made this Halloween so special was that it was William's first, and he got to spend it at Uncle Ricky's house.

Special thanks to Bob Wade for turning us on to Clarence Swenson and his wife Myrna.
