Enterprise Newsletter • Have a SPOOKTACULAR good time this Halloween in the Jackalope City!
Several Halloween time events are planned across the Jackalope City!
If the number of gatherings and events planned are any indication, Douglas loves Halloween. Below is a list of the events we know are planned. Click on the headline for more information.

SCARECROWS : Scarecrows are popping up around the community. Several businesses have built their scarecrows and entered them in the community's annual contest. Take a drive and enjoy the entries! The winners will be announced on Oct. 26.

HAUNTED HOUSE: The Boys & Girls Club of Douglas is hosting a haunted house beginning on Oct. 26. Read the information before attending as it may be a LITTLE TOO SPOOKY for youngsters!

RUN! (or walk): Enter the 2018 Memorial Hospital of Converse County Organ Trail Zombie 5k and 10K on Oct. 27 at the Wyoming State Fairgrounds. Check-in begins at 3:00 for a 5:00 p.m. start. Be sure to read the details as this event is fun for far more than runners. It is a really FUN FAMILY OUTING!

TRICK-OR-TREAT: Every child in Douglas should have a full candy bucket this Halloween. Beginning at 3 p.m. on Halloween and spanning through 6 p.m., local businesses will be greeting trick-or-treaters. Participating businesses will have a completed coloring sheet featuring Frankenstein hanging in their windows.

TRUNK-OR-TREATING: While you're out trick-or-treating don't miss Jackalope Square. Between Jackalope Square and The Enterprise offices at 130 S. 3rd, Main Street Douglas will be hosting Trunk-Or-Treating. Rather than going door-to-door, trick-or-treaters will be going trunk-to-trunk!

ATTENTION ARTISTS: Whether you're a pumpkin carver or a painter, be sure to check out this month's offering at the libraries in Douglas and Glenrock. They have some really great Halloween events planned!

We have also seen some posters hanging in the windows of downtown businesses for events planned the weekend prior to Halloween. Head to downtown Douglas for a fun Halloween-time evening!
Little fixes and generosity are making a big difference at the Douglas Railroad Museum
Tri-Lite Inc., a company that makes a variety of lights and light covers, recently made a much-appreciated donation to the Douglas Railroad Museum. The company gave the museum replacement lenses for the front of the steam locomotive.

"Bill Truitt at the Museum," says Cindy Porter, Executive Director of The Enterprise, "contacted the company and they offered to send the lenses free of charge. Bill is in the process of replacing them. We are really excited about the upgrade and truly appreciate the donation."

Porter continues, "As most know, the steam engine and the rail cars are in need of extensive repairs. We were amazed to see what a positive impact this donation had in the overall appearance of the engine. It's also a step in the right direction to giving our rail cars the attention they need."

If you're out and about in the Douglas community, swing by the Railroad Museum and see the upgrades underway.
"Several major repairs are needed to the rail cars, but in the interim Bill has been identifying small repairs and maintenance that truly does have a positive impact on the site and our collection," says Porter.

Christmas lights will soon be hung on the trains. Stay tuned for details on a Christmas-time event planned at the historic depot! "We are hoping to see many community members, especially children, at the Depot this holiday season," says Porter.
CHILI COOK-OFF...things are heating up!
