Trick or Treat hours have been set for Seaton on October 31 from 5-7 p.m. Residents who want little ghosts, goblins and witches to visit their houses should leave their porch lights on.

A few men from our area were treated the Honor Flight that left last Friday from the Quad City Airport for Washington, DC. James “Cap” Fair of Seaton and his son, Bill got to go on the flight as did Cap’s brother and his son which made it even more special. They visited the WWII memorial, the Iwo Jima memorial, saw the changing of the guard and many other sights. Jake Gluba of Keithsburg was also honored to go on the flight and his granddaughter accompanied him. During the trip the men were treated with dignity, respect, comfort and food. When they arrived back on Saturday night at the Quad City Airport they were greeted by a huge crowd waving flags and shaking their hands. Cap Fair saw neighbors, Ed and Mary Schrock in the crowd. They were there with their son, Gary who is on the area honor guard.

The Center Presbyterian Church postponed the hayrack ride scheduled because of the cold last Sunday night the 11th. They thought it would not even be pleasant to sit around the fire, much less hold a plate of food since it is a potluck also. Several families with little ones were not planning to come because of the cold.  The event was postponed until Saturday, Oct. 17.

The junior high football teams ended their season at Knoxville on Tuesday night. The seventh grade were victorious with a 22-6 score over Knoxville.
