Trunk or Treat trunks needed

The Windham Parks & Recreation Department will once again celebrate Halloween with its annual “Trunk or Treat” party from 6-8 p.m. Oct. 26 at Windham Middle School. To help make the event successful, Parks & Rec is looking for individuals, families, businesses and organizations who would like to host a trunk. Just fill your vehicle’s trunk with candy and decorate it in your favorite Halloween theme. Prizes will be awarded to trunks that are fun, creative and spooky. You must register in order to participate at or at the Parks & Recreation office at Town Hall. Registration ends Oct. 20. Call 892-1905 for more details.

Crafters wanted

Friends Church and the Windham Historical Society will hold a combined Christmas Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 8 at the church, 374 Gray Road. The old Quaker meetinghouse will be filled with handcrafted holiday decorations and wonderful gift ideas. The Historical Society’s famous baked goods and candy will also be sold. There will be a raffle for an exquisite handmade quilt and the Historical Society’s Bicentennial calendar will be available for purchase. More crafters are welcome to join in on the festivities and fun. If you would like to rent a table at the fair, call 892-9537 for information.

Learn about genealogy

Join Maine State Library genealogy specialist B.J. Jamieson at the Windham Public Library from 6-7 p.m. Oct. 30 when he discusses DNA and genealogy. Learn what DNA tests to take, what the results mean and how you can use them to connect with your family. This will be a fascinating way to spend an hour and it could put you in touch with family members you’ve yet to meet. Call Ray Marcotte at the Library at 892-1908 to find out more about the talk.

Lions craft fair

The Windham Lions Club is sponsoring a craft fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 19 at the North Windham Union Church, 372 Roosevelt Trail.

In addition, local businesses are participating in raffles, giving you another opportunity to win a prize. All proceeds from the fair will benefit the Lions Club’s area charities.
