For a different type of Halloween celebration, which involves giving back to the community, take part in the annual Blue Goose Fruit Shed work party from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 31. Randy Elder, president of the non-profit South Placer Heritage Foundation that owns the center, and board members have invited the community to help with light repairs and maintenance in the event center. Tasks include removing staples and nails from the walls, cleaning vents and touching up paint. Also scheduled are exterior clean-ups that include leaf blowing the grounds, plus raking and shoveling some of the debris surrounding fruit shed. “Leaf blowers, rakes and shovels are also needed, so please bring what you have to the Blue Goose,” Elder said. Tools will be provided so that anyone can participate. “We have largely been successful in the renovation of the Blue Goose due to the efforts of the wonderful people in the Loomis Basin, and beyond, so please continue to show your support by helping us spruce the Goose,” Elder said. Refreshments and pizza will be served. For more information, call Elder at 652-8555.
