Matthew Dodd celebrated his eighth birthday with a Halloween themed party and a haunted woods hayride on Saturday night, Oct. 29. He had a large crowd of friends and family to join in the fun, food, and activities. His grandmother, Joyce Dodd, reports, “The decorations were fun and festive, with lots of ghosts, goblins and spooky music. The adults had as much or more fun than the kids.”
