ATTENTION GHOSTS AND GOBLINS
The dental office of Dr. Kohrt in Susanville is having a Halloween Candy Buy Back from 2 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6. Too much candy this year? Well, Dr. Kohrt's office will be collecting unopened candy and then sending it on to the military troops serving our country. For every pound collected our ghosts and goblins will earn $1 and a dental goodie bag. They will also have a coloring station to make cards to include in the boxes they send to the troops.
UPTOWN TRICK OR TREATING
The annual Uptown Trick or Treating is set from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31. Once again, thanks to the Susanville Police Department, they will have Main Street blocked off from the top of Main Street to Weatherlow Street so all the little ghosts and goblins can cross safely. This year there will be an art contest sponsored by HUSA (Historic Uptown Susanville Association) and the Lassen County Arts Council. For a haunting good time, visit U.S. Banks’ haunted room and Lassen PC's haunted dungeon. There will be a photo booth this year, and of course lots of performances by House of Dance and J and J Performing Arts.
Shaffer Elementary School will be hosting its first annual Harvest Festival from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30 in the Shaffer Elementary School gymnasium. There will be carnival-style game booths, a cake walk, Space Jump jump house, bingo and so much more! Food will be on sale — a full dinner plate of tamales, beans and rice for $6, tamales a la carte, $2 each, and even take home tamales, one dozen for $20.
Admission is free; costumes are optional. Booth tickets are available at the festival and if you donate a bag of candy you can get a free carnival ticket. Bring the whole family, have dinner, have fun and help support the Shaffer School students. If you have any questions, feel free to call Michelle Dunten at 249-7523 or check them out at shafferschool.com. Hope to see you there.

BREAKTHROUGH HAIR COLOR TECHNOLOGY
Heather Marsh, owner of Hair Hunters in Uptown Susanville, tells us she and Carrie Loe recently attended the Redken hair-coloring seminar in Reno.
“I’m very excited to be introducing the new line of Redken chromatics hair color system,” said Marsh.
According to Marsh, the new oil delivery system plus protein extract technology gives chromatics the unique ability to fortify hair and deliver color pigments at the same time. If you are looking for high impact color that reduces breakage, see the color specialists at Hair Hunters today.
