Mrs. Koch was the humbled recipient of an award this morning.
It was a surprise. Her younger daughter, Natalie, somehow finagled getting Mrs. Koch away from the front gate this morning in order to attend the ceremony.
The award is from the Crisis Connection here in southern Indiana. They're all about zero tolerance toward violence of any kind - and helping those who are victim to it.
Mrs. Koch and her family have long supported Crisis Connection and its efforts to help those who need an advocate to help them find a better way to live.
Above, Edmond Talucci, the president of Crisis Connection, presents Mrs. Koch with this year's Community Award.

Amid all the planning for Happy Halloween Weekends this year, it was fun adding a new friend to our Holidog & Friends line-up.
Kitty Claws was such a hit this summer that she's even part of the new Holidog's 3D Halloween Adventure. Here she is in 3D:
Kitty will also be featured in Pumpkin Up (a talking pumpkins show) and will host her own Dance Party during our October weekends (check here for the show schedule).
Kitty even makes an appearance in this Happy Halloween Weekends video:
Hope you can join us - we think Happy Halloween Weekends will be the purrrrfect way to spend an October weekend!

... then you're barking up the wrong tree!
We like to think of ourselves as family-friendly - a "G rated" park, if you will. And Happy Halloween Weekends will be the same.
This happy (and somewhat dentally disadvantaged) fellow arrived yesterday.
We'll call him Woodrow for now.
He arrived pale as a ghost, but let's go out on a limb and predict he just needs a little paint before he's ready to take his place in Holidog's 3D Halloween Adventure.
Woodrow is an interactive tree, but we don't expect him to pitch any apples (a la Wizard of Oz) at anyone. He'll have lots of fun with children of all ages who visit us weekends in October.
We hope you'll join us!

Here comes autumn ...
Each day the evidence is more clear.
The overnight temps dropped into the 40s and it won't be long before there's "frost on the pumpkins."
The cornstalk decorations for Happy Halloween Weekends arrive today ... and soon we'll take delivery of straw bales and pumpkins.
Foods is concocting a Pumpkin Funnel Cake recipe, plus Apple Pie Fudge and Chili Soup will be added to our menus in October. We'll even have chicken nuggets in Halloween shapes!
Vanessa and the merchandise crew are decorating the shops with ghosts and pumpkins. And our Games even have some themed prizes.
Themed shows will include a stage show called Graveyard Smash, a magic show, and a talking pumpkin show called Pumpkin Up. We'll even have a Halloween-themed laser light show on Saturdays and Kitty Claws Dance Party on Sundays.
Our show/activity schedule is posted here on the Happy Halloween Weekends page of our website

"The vortex is in motion!"
Well, it didn't take a second call on the two-way radio for Nathan and Amanda to grab cameras and dash over to the Holiday Theater to witness for themselves the grand finale of Holidog's 3D Halloween Adventure in action.
Here's Amanda (complete with glowing headband and wobbily knees) trying to steady herself after walking through the whirling vortex while wearing 3D glasses:
Happy Halloween Weekend premiere October 6. Hope you can come take a spin!
