Ashley, Mandy, Pete and David met at the church on the spookiest day of the year to dig holes in the graveyard. Several trick-or-treaters warned us not to turn into zombies. Our task was to dig a hole for a new walnut tree. Ashley set about digging a hole, occasionally asking passers by if they'd like to help; there were no takers. Mandy and Pete tended to the nearby trees finally collecting a large bag of trimmings. Mandy, or Alice as she'll be known from now on, fell into a large rabbit hole that miraculously we'd all missed for over an hour.
