has begun. With one week to plan, pods like mine with the Center for the blind, the Crazy merchant and Adventures in dance gather together to plan a winning pumpkin pole.

With only one week to plan, gather supplies, and build out 14 ft. pumpkin sculpture, the heat is on. We planned a headless horseman. The center for the blind got to it and designed, built and painted the silhouette of a horse. The Crazy merchant got cobwebs, tombstones, and painted pumpkins. And Adventures in dance built the headless horseman.

With a chill in the air and rain on the horizon we gathered on Thursday morning to put together our creation. We even added light up eyes, and cried, “It’s alive” when we finished.   After a stormy night we gathered again to touch it up and meet and greet the judges. We met Greg Moody and a Mayor Dallas Hay from Sheridan. We tempted them with treats from the Crazy merchant. Things like cupcakes, pretzels and vitamin water, dance lessons and hugs from the center for the blind.  Later that night the results were posted on facebook.

 

The results are…
