Wedding announcement

Paula Outler and Will Farrar have decided to take a unique approach to the traditional wedding ceremony.

The couple will tie the knot on their favorite holiday, Halloween, with a “Ghoulishly Delightful Halloween” themed wedding.

Guests have been invited to wear costumes for the wedding ceremony and the couple will change into Supergirl and Thor costumes for the wedding reception. The reception’s setting is a spooky graveyard with Halloween music.

Keeping with the theme, the couple’s castle wedding cake with a gargoyle cake topper will sit on a six-foot wooden coffin built for the reception.

The couple will reside in North Augusta.

Boxing club donates land

Habitat for Humanity of North Augusta received a gift that will allow it to continue to help others realize their dreams of home ownership.

The North Augusta PAL Boxing Club donated five lots to the nonprofit on Oct. 24 at Donald H. White’s law office on Martintown Road.

The land, on McKenzie Street, was given to the boxing club by the Knox Foundation years ago. After the boxing club moved to Burnettown, its founders, Noah and Jo-Anne Newman, decided to donate the land.

Applicants are sought for the next Habitat for Humanity home. Applica-tions and homeowner eligibility requirements are available at www.hfhna.org.
