Be a tree steward. Tree Fredericksburg is kicking off its tree stewards program this weekend with a Saturday tree pruning class from 9 a.m. to noon at Maury Playground. The group will also hold a tree planting session Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Memorial Park on Kenmore Avenue. If you are interested in either of these volunteer opportunities, contact Anne Little at 540/207-4298. For more information on these and future volunteer opportunities, click here.

The Great Pumpkin! The city’s community police officers and Downtown Retail Marketing Inc. are hosting a movie night Friday in Market Square, along with trick-or-treating in select downtown shops. Trick-or-treating will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m., and two movies–"It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," and "Hocus Pocus" will play in Market Square from 7 until 9 p.m. Come in costume.

Happy Halloween! (No Buzz tomorrow. And yeah, 10:45 is a little late for "morning." I actually wrote this at 8 a.m., but my computer didn’t decide to wake up and post until now. It’s taking a trip to the computer spa tomorrow, so let’s hope it comes back in a better mood.)
