2009 Pumpkin Painting a Success

  The day started out cold and snowy, but that didn’t deter the enthusiastic painters and their families.  Almost 65 pumpkins were decorated.  While waiting for the paint to dry, the children enjoyed cookies and Kool Aid and played games.

Special guest was Howard Lake Good Neighbor Days Queen, Ellen Korsbon.   Queen Ellen painted a pumpkin, played games and encouraged the painters.

Carol Moorhead again displayed her artistic pumpkin painting.

A grateful THANK YOU to Untiedt’s Vegetable Farm from Waverly for providing the pumpkins.

Please click on the thumbnails to see the artists at work.  See you next year!  Photos provided by Amy Korsbon.
