Correction: An earlier version of this column listed an incorrect date for the Lions’ rib dinner.

On Saturday evening, Friends of the Adobes invite you to visit the Haunted Rios-Caledonia Adobe from 7 to 9 p.m.

Candles will be provided to light your way through the darkened rooms of the old building. You will hear stories of ghosts who still make their presence known. There will be Tarot readings and refreshments. Come if you dare!
