Pumpkin Glow and Carving Contest a Success
The first Mitchell Community College Pumpkin Glow and Carving Contest held
on Saturday, October 29 was deemed a success by David Heinmiller and Anita
McGill. Although the chilly weather might have kept public participation
low, those who attended had a great time. Prizes were awarded to five
children following the judging of the children’s costume contest and three
prizes were awarded in the Pumpkin Carving Contest. Overall approximately 50
pumpkins lit up the Circle in front of the Main Building with their smiling
or scary faces. Whether you came to see Ryan Newman’s NASCAR army car,
purchase food from Tom’s Big Dogs or purchase something from the volunteers
selling foods and drinks, a good time was had by all. We raised
approximately $700 to benefit the Purple Heart Homes and their numerous
projects helping our disabled veterans. A big thank you to all the faculty,
staff and students who volunteered their time to make the event a success.
Thank you also to the MCC Art Club, American Renaissance Middle School and
VPAC students for carving pumpkins for the event.
