Every year for the last 40 years Ponderosa Forest has had a Fall Carnival known to the residents as “Pumpkin Patch”. This years event was today (October 31, 2010). With the cooler weather, you couldn’t have asked for a better day to hold a festival.
With too many activities for the kiddos to count, some of the most popular were Face Painting, Cake Walk Confetti Eggs, Bouncy House and the traditional Silent Auction with dozens of items to bid on. The event is hosted every year by the Ponderosa Forest PTO. As always all the Auction items are donated by Residents and Businesses that surround the neighborhood, and there were some really great items this year including gift baskets to movie tickets to a 4 day getaway in Colorado. I personally won a $50 gift certificate for veterinary services, which came just in time since my dogs are due for their annual shots.
The proceeds from ticket sales and auction winnings will benefit the Ponderosa Elementary School, so it’s a win-win for everyone. I can’t think of a better way to raise money and awareness. Neighborhood participation was amazing, hundreds of residents turned out this year, the little ones were able to get a jump start on their Halloween gear and a great time was had by all.
