Pumpkin Festival 2016
Camp Sunshine Pumpkin Festival 2016
After school on Friday, October 21st, students from the Student Service Corps and from Mr. Harding's Art class joined together to face the daunting task of carving over 500 pumpkins behind the L.L.Bean store in Mansfield.
Even the rain did not deter the massive effort to prepare for the Pumpkin Festival to benefit Camp Sunshine, a retreat on Lake Sebago in Maine for children with serious illnesses and their families.
The SSC advisors, Mrs. Fournier and Mrs. Shea who were also up to their elbows in pumpkin seeds would like to thank the Manley family for organizing the carving event and all of the students who participated in this rewarding opportunity.
On Saturday, the festival and 5K race took place at the Mansfield Crossing store with the carved pumpkins lining the store displays, sidewalks and parking lot.
