Halloween isn't just for kids. Adults met at Rawlins Library on Thursday night to have a little fun carving pumpkins -- and one red pepper.

The event was part of Rawlins' programming time geared toward providing adult residents an opportunity to socialize with their fellow community members.

The Bonding over Books Club is only for people 18 and older. The next event is a game night on Nov. 18 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the library.

Youth Services Coordinator Ginny Kaus said people should bring an item to donate to the Pierre Area Referral Service during the Nov. 18 event. PARS needs canned food, non-perishable mixers like Hamburger or Tuna Helper, dry goods, peanut butter and jelly, men's and women's hygiene products, laundry supplies and cash donations. Kaus asked that items not be out of date, open, previously used or in glass containers.

On Thursday, seven people got to work carving pumpkins they brought along with them -- hence the lone red pepper. And you may notice a familiar face in the group.

The Capital Journal's Del Bartels was among the attendees enjoying an evening of socializing and carving.

Kaus ribbed the attendees that the agreement was they finished with the same amount of fingers they began with, leaving the night a fun success.
