The passage of the seasons in Riverton was marked by games and pageantry on an almost epic scale. The recreation staff was headed by the inimitable Dolly King who typically held court at these affairs. But it was of Mrs Bell and Mrs Gates who kept peace and decorum and attended to the occaisional wounded child.
Halloween was a time for trick or treating throughout all of the many buildings , and amassing ridiculous amounts of candy, while keeping a watchful eye out for roving bands of halloween terrorists, bearing chalk filled socks. And of course there was the inevitable stomach ache resulting from candy abuse!!
