The Rogers Fall Festival Was a Great Fall Adventure

 October 10 was a year in the making.  G12P approached the Rogers Village Council in October of 2014 with the idea of having a ghost walk in town, and suggested they could turn it into what ever they wanted.  They wanted a festival and they got one!



Donations came from all over for the Chinese Auction, the hay ride and other events.

 Judy Lennington and Linda Weiner, two local authors were there to talk about their books and meet and greet!

Cindy Burkette Willoughby was also there giving readings. As always you can reach here at
Readings by Cindy.
 There were hayrides/ghost tours of town and it was said Rogers hadn't been that busy and full of people in 25 years!  


 It was a wonderful day, not bad for the first time!  It will be done again next year. Until then, we begin with meetings in January making plans for the next one!
The history and ghostly tales of Rogers Centered around a curse placed on Rogers many ago.   We visited the homestead of Theophilus Gates Rogers, the founder of Rogers, the grave, The Y Inn, and several other stops.
Next year will be even better!
