Halloween at Konaheeta Park and on Duke Street was an Amazing Success in Murphy NC!

Halloween this year was celebrated at Konaheeta Park and at Duke Street this year in Murphy NC. It turned out to be a huge success!

Trick-or-treating on Duke Street is a family favorite every year. Duke Street is located right inside Murphy city limits and is a residential neighborhood home to many of the area’s influential people, such as Mayor Bill Hughes. With hundreds of families and children, it was a tremendous turn out after dark! The city police keep through traffic off the roads making it safer for the children. The ticket to Duke Street is to show up after dark! There’s lots of candy, lots of people, and lots of friends and family you’ll see making the rounds house to house.

Before dark, Peachtree’s on Fire Family Church sponsored an excellent celebration at Murphy NC’s Konaheeta Park. It was full of families and children running around, collecting candy, playing games, and eating hot dogs. Admission was completely free for everyone and all the kids were given a free hot dog to keep their stomachs full of more than just candy! There were well over a dozen games for the kids to play and they could win candy for winning! Throw in jumpy toys, a hay ride, and music, it was a great Halloween for 2008!

Hiwassee Valley Pool and Wellness Center is a great asset to the town of Murphy and Cherokee County!

Since the opening of Hiwassee Valley Pool and Wellness Center, the people of Murphy have really enjoyed being more Hiwassee Valley Pool and Wellness Centerfit! Myself included, folks have been going to many of the different offerings the Wellness Center offers. The gym features many weight machines, free weights, ellipticals, tread mills, and more! The "class room" features many different classes like pilates, yoga, and more.

One of the landmark features is the pool itself. Right now, most people notice it because of the giant white dome that covers the pool during the cold months so it can be used year around. Its offered to many groups for swim classes, kayaking, and more! In fact, my daughters basketball team had a pool party to celebrate the end of the season yesterday.

Costs are very affordable considering all they have to offer. Although they have several different plans, I would say the two most common is $35 per month for an individual or $55 per month for a family per month.

They are a great compliment to the Murphy Community. Next time you’re going through the town of Murphy, look for Konaheeta Park and the Hiwassee Valley Pool & Wellness Center is right there.
