    Shoreline Social Report: October 29 – November 1


    local events

    What could possibly scream 2020 more than a full, Blue Moon occurring on Halloween…on a Saturday?!?! According to NASA and the Old Farmer’s Almanac, it’s been 76 years since the Halloween of 1944 when a full moon lit the night sky for trick-or-treaters in all times zones. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the forecast to remain steady so that we can enjoy a little safe and distant trick-or-treating fun!
