Riley Read 2011

This year the annual Riley Read was held at the Rensselaer branch of the Jasper County Library with refreshments provided by the Little Cousin Jasper Committee. Jane Lord read poems that had a Halloween theme such as Little Orphant Annie, The Raggedy Man, and Nine Little Goblins.
The weather was wonderful, but the attendance was disappointing. There were very few kids, maybe because they were all getting ready to go begging for candy in the neighborhoods.

Did you have a lot of kids stop by? We had pirates, witches, vampires, cats, princesses, skeletons and two creative boys who came as boys.
