Front Porch Appeal

Our Trick or Treat Issue
Issue #82 October 2016

October - fall in full swing, kids picking out Halloween costumes, pumpkin carving, and porches decorated to greet ghosts and goblins.

Porches love Halloween as they not only get decorated for fun or fright but also get to welcome trick or treaters and party guests.
