Nominations for the September Yard of the month can be submitted to the Chamber before September 30. Yard of the month is a program of the Grove Area Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee and the Grove Garden Club. Presenting the award were  Donnie Crain , president of Grove Area Chamber of Commerce;  Louise Templin , Grove Garden Club; and  Steve Williams , GACC Beautification Committee.
Mysterious, fun, and informative, Ghosts of Grove is a haunted history tour unlike anything you've ever experienced on Grand Lake.

The tour tells mostly true stories of some of Grove's "spirited" former residents, some of which residents say have never left. From Honey Creek to Sailboat Bridge, the city limits can barely contain the antics, scandals and murders that have happened before and after the town's founding in 1902.

This two night only special event takes place on Friday & Saturday, October 25-26. Guests will gather at the Grove Community Center to embark on an approximately 45 minute trolley tour through local sites and local legends. The trolley will depart hourly, beginning at 5 p.m. with the final tour departing at 8 p.m. for a total of four tours per night.

While awaiting tours, local businesses will have interactive games, goodies and more for your enjoyment on the community center lawn. Guests can also meet members of the local paranormal research group, Four State Paranormal, who will be airing episodes of their show "Haunting History", including an episode shot on location at Har-Ber Village.

Tickets are available now for $10 per person. Seating on the trolley is limited and advanced reservations are highly recommended. Make your reservation in person or by calling 918-786-9079.

Come aboard the Grand Ole Trolley - the Ghosts of Grove have been dying to
meet you.
