JW Morlock & Girls Fruit Farm from Watervliet, Michigan, brought fruit and one big vegetable on Oct. 29 to the penultimate Evanston Farmers Market. Thank you for the side of Halloween whimsy. Don’t forget Saturday, Nov. 5, is the city’s last farmers market of the season.

There’s a new friend sitting on the blue bench at Kedzie Street and Judson Avenue. In early October, the RoundTable’s Wendi Kromash wrote about refinishing this lovely bench and placing it under the tree in front of her condominium building. Each step of the way, she met new people. Go ahead, take a seat!

Laura Dranoff Antolin took these picture-perfect “photos of this most beautiful fall” in Evanston.

The picture and this poetic description come from Shayle Miller: “Deering Park, adjacent to Lighthouse Beach, has this magnificent maple tree, sitting venerably in its palettes’ isolation. For many years now, we watch daily to see its transformation. We call it, The Great Tree. It never fails to enchant.”

Mike Roche caught these two intrepid surfers and paddlers on the “Dempster Beach Pipeline” in the early afternoon sun. There’s a lot more people than you think who surf the Great Lakes. And if you have a fullsuit, you can go all winter. It may be cold, but at least there are no men in grey suits to think about.

Thank you, Anita Gewurz for this fun and fascinating picture you took on the morning of Oct. 30 of these colorfully painted paper leaves. She wrote: “This is on the Central Street window of the Evanston Art Center, but appears to be juxtaposed against EAC’s current exhibit and the reflected buildings across the street, creating an intriguing – though unintended – collage, not unlike some of the artwork that’s on display inside.”

One last look at these happy RoundTable staffers as they celebrated going to the Northern Illinois News Association awards on Oct. 28. Yes, we do love getting out of the newsroom because these smiles came before they even went into the ceremony, where they won 48 awards and 12 of them first place honors. From left are: Jean Cunningham, columnist; Duncan Agnew, reporter; and Richard Cahan, photographer. Congrats, again!
