It just isn’t Halloween without a good scary story, according to storyteller Bill Wood’s website. His repertoire features spine-tingling tales of the supernatural, frightening stories of fearsome beasts, and humorous accounts of the things that make us shudder.

Wood will be joined by music teacher Guenevere Finley for Hadley’s “Fall Frolic” on Sunday, Oct. 31. This special event will be held at London Grove Friends Meeting, 500 West Street Road in Kennett Square at 2 p.m.

 All Hadley Fund events are free and open to the public, but tickets are required. For more information, call 610-444-1855 or visit http://www.hadleypresents.orgEvent registration is available at

Notable past performers have included Martin Luther King Jr., Linus Pauling, Julius Erving, Marian Anderson, Alex Haley, Norman Cousins, Ogden Nash and Gloria Steinem. More recently, Hadley seasons have included lectures by Stephen Kress on puffins, Jerrold Post on terrorism, Linda Ales on photography, and award-winning journalists Donald L. Bartlett and James B.
