Trick or Treaters took over Main Street in downtown Sylva on Saturday afternoon, October 26, as merchants gave out candy, suckers, bubble gum, popcorn and other goodies during Treat Street, an event organized by the Main Street Sylva Association to provide a safe Halloween experience for the costume-clad youngsters. We enjoyed seeing all the smiling faces visit us at the book store. More photos
During the October 5 culinary Taste of Sylva, folks could also get a flavor of mountain music and "Luscious Literary Leftovers," like Deep-Fried Drama, Marinated Mystery and Sizzling Romance, at the bookstore. With her silver teapot to collect the tickets, FOL social chair Myrtle Schrader took donations for the Bear Went Over the Mountain quilt. More photos
