It’s that time of year again– time for the Preble County Pumpkin Festival, which will be held this October 29th-30th.

The Pumpkin Festival traditionally features pumpkin carving, line dancing, ghost story telling, and a “monster mashup” of songs from Preble’s favorite a capella group, “Tone Fol de Rol”.

There’s also the Preble County Pumpkin Festival Scare Cave, which is a load of fun, unless you’re my oldest son, Zachary. Read more →→→


It’s Fall Gala Time!

October 7, 2011 at 7:36 pm

Tickets are going on sale for the October 22nd Fall Gala which will benefit the senior class at Preble County High School.

The theme this year is “Autumn Leaves”. It’s a great opportunity to support some even greater kids!

My second oldest son is Zachary is a senior and I am going to miss him very much. He’s such a sweet boy, he hasn’t had trouble at school since second grade.

That year I got called into the principal’s office for a chat because his teacher said that Zachary wouldn’t stop sticking his hands down his pants. I asked him why and he said, “I don’t know, it just feels good!”

I told him it wasn’t appropriate school behavior and he’s been on the straight and narrow ever since!

Tickets are $3 for students and $5 for everyone else. The dance starts at 7:00pm. I’m hoping to see a lot of you there!

The Preble Picayune was a bi-weekly newspaper that served the people of Preble County, Ohio for over a century. Just a few years ago, “The Pic” was a flourishing publication, reaching almost 30,000 readers daily, but with the rise of the World Wide Web, circulation fell into a decline.
