This year’s Giant Pumpkin Day at Thornhill was the first in six years with sun all day. The Pumpkin Rolling Contest was a great success with pumpkins hopping downhill at amazing speeds. The Potluck dinner was the richest ever in quality and number of dishes offered. Pumpkin art on display was fabulous and the heaviest pumpkin weighed in at more than 300 lbs.
A warm thank you to Klaus and Betty and all the volunteers who made this such a great success (again).
There have been several emails sent to contacts of Ruskin Hall, that were in fact spam. If you are suspicious of messages in your inbox, check the full address of the sender by mousing over it. If it says if it says ruskinhall@anythingelse other that @yahoo it is not from Ruskin Hall. Also, we never send messages with only a link (never click on them!), and we do not send messages from an iPhone.
The annual Giant Pumpkin Growing Contest and event day takes
place on October 25th at the THORNHILL hall.
The drought conditions this year meant that the pumpkins ripened early and so we weighed in on October 2nd.
Everyone is welcome to see the rolling. Meet at the Thornhill Hall at 9:30.
Everyone is also welcome at the hall between 5:00 and 5:30 to admire the carving.
The evening event, a beautiful potluck dinner, is sold out to community members that signed up and participated since last March.
We are all looking forward to another family day of excitement.
