CONRAD — One never knows what goes on at Halloween.

On Tuesday, the residents of Oakview Nursing Home in Conrad were treated to a pumpkin carving contest. Originally it was to be between Activities Coordinator Kelley Case and Social Services director Lynn Geiken — however when all was said and done, it was Oakview and Oak Estates Administrator Kara Butler that put her carving skills up against those of Geiken.

The two put up a creative battle with Geiken edging out Butler as the winner with one vote. But everyone in attendance thought both were very creative.

Other activities going on this week at Oakview, on Thursday morning the BCLUW elementary students will come and have a costume parade for the residents, and Thursday evening from 6-8 p. m. parents are invited to bring their kids to “Trick or Treat” at Oakview and at Oak Estates.
