Cost is $50 per couple or $35 for an Individual and Reservations are required: lisa.hogue.1.@korea.army.mil

Families of the Year Nominations now being accepted Do you know a Military Family at Camp Humphreys, Suwon AB or the Army Element at Osan AB that “Exemplifies What a Military Family Can and Should Be?” Then nominate them for the Area III Military Families of the Year Recognition Ceremony scheduled for the Community Activity Center on Saturday, November 5. All nominated Families will be recognized, with three of them selected as the Best of the Best by a committee of Community Leaders. If you want to nominate a Family, send their Name, Unit, E-mail address and an explanation of 25 words or less as to why they should be honored to Michael.mooney2@korea.army.mil Past nominees have included everything from Families headed by Privates to Lt. Colonels as well as dual military.

10 FRGs, Youth Groups, POs needed Ten Family Readiness Groups, Youth Groups or Private Organizations are needed for the first Pumpkin Decorating Contest, a new feature of this year’s Spooky Hallow. Each group will be given a pumpkin to decorate. The pumpkins will be displayed at Spooky Hallow and be accompanied by a cash box. People will vote for their favorite pumpkin by putting cash in the box. Each quarter or 300 won is worth one vote. Voting runs from 1700-1900. At that time, the money will be counted and the pumpkin getting the most votes will receive 60 percent of the total money collected, with second place getting 25% and third place 15%. Reserve your pumpkin at Michael.mooney2@korea.army.mil

It’s time to sign up for your Spooky Hallow booth Got a great idea for your Unit’s entry in the annual Spooky Hallow Community Halloween Festival? Your concept could result in your Unit receiving up to $500 in Unit Funds – just in time for the Holidays. Family & MWR will credit $500, $250, $125, $75 or $50 to the top five Unit attractions at Spooky Hallow. And, yes, your FRG can win the money for your Spooktacular Attraction, but the money goes to the Unit Fund, not the FRG Register for Spooky Hallow at (area3mwrmarketing@korea.army.mil) Tell us how big a space you need for your display. Family & MWR Activities will provide you a spot complete with electricity (110V), a 4x8 foot booth and an awning. Many units, however, bring their own tents (GP large, medium & small). Booths are available for Units, Family Readiness Groups, Private Organizations and Youth Groups.
