ACT INVITES YOU TO “TRAVEL AVOYELLES” … OCTOBER EVENTS

The wait is over, It’s Fall, Ya’ll! As we see the small animals gathering their stashes for the winter, so do we begin to think of things to do, places to go and, of course, what Fall fare is out there. Here are a few events for October that will lead us into November and the month of “Giving Thanks!”
