Preparations are well underway for the fall season at Gail's Pumpkin Patch near Beason. Here three of Gail's helpers work to ready up batches of ornamental corn into bundles that can be used as part of fall centerpieces or hung on porch stoops, or with corn stalk bundles as outdoor decoration. The patch officially opened on Friday and will be open daily now through October 31st.

While kids were whooping it up at the carnival in the park, adults enjoyed the serene setting of Prairie Rest Cemetery and hearing lore of past town folk who made their mark on Delavan.Delavan Community Historical Society walk thru history presented "Early builders of Delavan." Tinged with humor and passion, the talks were perfect to build community and to remember the influences of a few past community minded persons: Tex Meins, Ray H. Lillibridge, Frank W. Payne, Leo J. Stumbaugh and Max Neumann.  The Delavan Fall Festival "A Community of Superheroes" kicks into high gear today through Monday.
