Students Raise $299.26 At Pumpkin Patch
Winners of the Pumpkin Patch contest
Franklin students raised $299.26 for charity at the First Annual Franklin Pumpkin Patch.
 
Students were asked to bring in a decorated pumpkin and then the students were able to vote for their favorites by dropping coins into cups next to each of the entries.
 
This year's Pumpkin Patch contained 59 beautifully decorated pumpkins and it was difficult for the voters to decide which one was their favorite.
 
Four winners were selected.  Congratulations to:
  • Kyla Vennare-Starr -- Most Original
  • Abigail Miller -- Best Represents A Character
  • Catherine Carberry -- School Spirit
  • Persaius Helmich -- Scariest
All monies raised will go to buy holiday presents for needy families in the area.
 
Thanks to everyone who decorated a pumpkin and to everyone who donated!  Start thinking about your 2018 Pumpkin Patch design!  Please click here to see some photos from this year's Pumpkin Patch.
