    Scores of people came out, she said, and the group “just had some really good music, good food,” Cloud said. The gospel music group Stones Crossing performed, as did magician Doug Dowden. There was a chili cookoff, photo booth and hayride, as well.
    Of the outdoor event, Cloud said, “It was a little bit cool, but we had a fire going and we had lights on … everybody seemed to really enjoy the evening.”
