Time to carve, paint and decorate
Written by Holyoke Enterprise
“I got a big one!” “Thank you!” “This is heavy!” Students were saying
all sorts of things as they lined up to get their mitts on their bright
orange pumpkin Thursday afternoon, Oct. 27. Six businesses came
together to purchase pumpkins from Jackie and Toby Thompson of
Pumpkins and More. Above, Dylan Hielscher can barely get his hands
around his pumpkin.
Eduardo Hermosillo is pumped after getting his pumpkin.
Kambree Bules is all smiles.
Cash Weber is ecstatic after receiving his orange treat.
Rick Cumming and Brandi Martin hand out pumpkins to elementary
students. Bank of Colorado, Grainland Cooperative, Holyoke Community
Federal Credit Union, First Pioneer National Bank, PC Telcom and S&W
Auto Supply came together to make the annual event a success. They
also delivered pumpkins to Dragon’s Wagon Preschool. Recent moisture
not only halted the annual corn harvest, it almost halted pumpkin day.
Toby Thompson rolled up to the school Thursday afternoon and his
normally blue Dodge Durango was mud brown. Nonetheless, he succeeded
in getting the pumpkins delivered on time.
