"CARTOON PUMPKINS" CELEBRATES THE KID IN ALL OF US!

RESULTS OF 2018 HARVEST DAZE

"CARTOON PUMPKINS" CONTEST

The 2018 Harvest Daze Pumpkin Contest theme of "Cartoon Pumpkins" brought out the creativity in almost 40 participants with 26 pumpkin entries. Thanks to all participants, and special thanks to Mrs. Devine, art teacher from Glenn Raymond Middle School and Watseka Community High School. Jessica Runner, a genealogy volunteer helped us man the tent both days.

A little rain now and then did not deter our visitors! The voters had much difficulty casting their votes, but we still had a steady stream of people stop by to view the pumpkins and vote.

PRESIDENT'S CHOICE
The President's Choice, honoring the pumpkin showing the best use of the theme went to a group of students from Glenn Raymond Middle School in Watseka. Natalie, Amelia, Jacob and Camden created the classic "Tom & Jerry" cartoon, #603.
