The Harvest Party and Jack-O-Lantern Stroll was a huge success and we had an amazing turnout! After the party, we were able to donate 78 pumpkins to “Jack-O-Lanterns on Broadway” to benefit ShelterCare. For each carved pumpkin donated, ShelterCare sponsors gave a $5 donation to ShelterCare’s fight against homelessness in Lane County. That means Walterville School raised $390 for ShelterCare!
We’d like to send a big thank you to Herrick Farms for donating the pumpkins at a considerably reduced rate and to all those who carved the pumpkins: Mrs. Pratt’s class, Mrs. Orton’s class, McKenzie Stage Stop, McKenzie Fire and Rescue, McKenzie Valley Presbyterian Church, Walterville Grange, C & K Market, McKenzie Feed & Tackle, McKenzie Feed & Pet Supplies, McKenzie Disposal, McKenzie River Organic Farm, The White Family, Mathers Market, Mr. Underwood’s class (Thurston High School), and the Mirhosseyni Family.
Special thanks also go to C & K Market for donating the treat bags and to Dustin VanDerSommen for providing the delicious funnel cakes and donating part of the earnings to the Walterville PTO.
