As always, it seems Summer has passed way too quickly. Once the Strawberry Festival has come and gone, it seems only a short time until the leaves begin to fall and our thoughts turn toward Halloween. Halloween on Vashon is very unique. Each year the kids don their costumes and head up town for the annual Halloween Parade. After the parade, all the kids go around to the local businesses in town and go "trick or treating". Windermere has become one of the most visited places on Halloween. Not because we are just an extraordinary bunch of people, but because every year we put together a haunted house that all the kids get to walk through. Two years ago, not only did we have our haunted house, but we all dressed as zombies and periodically treated the audience to the dance from Michael Jackson's Thriller. Last year we became the Addams Family, complete with Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Pugsley, Cousin It, Lurch, Grandmama and of course Thing. (hand in the box) Some of the brave kids who walked through the haunted house came back again and again! It was a lot of fun and a lot of hard work went into the preparations. All of the agents pitch in and spend a great deal of time and effort into decorating and transforming our office into a ridiculously scary haunted home. This year will be more of the same, with a very special twist planned. If you've never experienced this before, I urge you to come on by and see just how wacky our office can be! Real estate wise, we've had a very busy summer and hopefully an even busier fall. Still lots of homes for sale on the island and more coming on the market daily. I'll leave you with a pic from last year's Halloween adventure….hopefully you will make it out to this year's event which I promise will be bigger & better than ever!
