Anyone who saw Royal Oaks Events Facility owner Steve Greene show up for the annual Royal Oaks community Halloween Party on Oct. 30 got quite a scare.
The Maryville attorney, clad in a leather mask, brought a chainsaw and revved it up. What those unsuspecting victims at the party didn’t know was he had taken the chain off, making it harmless, but a good weapon to draw some laughs.
More than one person jumped when he put the chain-less chainsaw to their legs. Greene was happy with the turnout at the event. “There were more folks than initially expected,” he said. “Most of them were residents of Royal Oaks. It was a great time, everyone was in costume and partied, danced and had a good time.”
Royal Oaks resident Dick Cutler was event chair and organized the party. “We’ve been doing it in recent years. There were about 60 people there and most everybody was internal of Royal Oaks,” he said.
The costumes were both scary and clever -- from the vampires Gail and Brent Hale to the Golf Pro and witch, Sharon and Dick Leslie. Taking home honors for Best In Show were Alan and Dianne Goss.
