Determining Draculas Contest Continues…



  We are officially on the second and final week of our Annual Halloween Contest! Just in case you need another reminder on how to participate…
  Scattered throughout this issue you will find several adorable (and not so adorable) little Draculas. All you need to do is count them…easy peasy.
  Better shake, rattlesnake – I’ll wait while you count…
  Done? Are you sure? Did you remember to count twice?
  Ok, now add that number to the number you got by counting the little bloodsuckers last week. Got your grand total? Cool, now send it to me!
  You can email the answer to, or you can drop a post card in the snail mail at Webb Weekly, 280 Kane St., Suite 2, South Williamsport, PA 17702. Entries must be submitted by Oct. 23rd and only one entry per person.
  I will then take everyone who answered correctly and pick 10 random winners. Winners will receive a bucket full of goodies big enough to make several local dentists very, very happy! Winners will be listed in the Oct. 28th edition.
  In honor of ‘Adopt a Shelter Dog Month’, for every entry we receive we will donate $1.00 to the SPCA!
  So look carefully and count them up! I get a little sneaky when I place them, so make sure you check every page closely!
  Now, I know what you are going to say, “Buuuut Steph! I forgot to count last week and now I don’t have the paper around anymore!” Ok first of all, stop throwing away my hard work so quickly. Also, if you go to you can flip through last week’s issue and count them there! This is why I love technology people!

Halloween Ready…
  So are you ready for Halloween yet? I am going to start making my costume this week! I am going to a friends Halloween and I always hate to show up to a party empty handed. So this is what I am making to take!
