Last week to boo a yard!
This year, LOVE Yard Cards is hosting a fundraiser for PTEPTA!
You tell them who to "BOO!" and they'll do the rest: a fun Halloween display in their front yard and a bag of treats left on their door step. Runs until October 30th. The best part? For EVERY "Boo", PTEPTA will receive $10! For more information, see their flyer! Help support a local small business & spread some seasonal cheer!
