Friendly Forest ahead

September 12, 2012

Clarkston Optimist Jeff Reed, left, and Jeff Morris, recreation programmer with Independence Township Parks and Rec, and a couple felt-skinned friends are busy planning for this year's Friendly Forest, 3-6 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 20, at Clintonwood Park. Kids ages 2-9 collect trick-or-treat goodies from television, movie, and fairy-tale characters, including Bert and Ernie. This year's route through the park is set to be longer, Morris said. The Optimists are in their third year, helping to plan and volunteering at the Halloween event. Tickets are on sale at Township Hall, 6483 Waldon Center Road, $6/resident, $8/non-resident, free for adults. Call 248-625-8223. Photo by Phil Custodio
