Do you have a little one (or a big one who never quite grew up) who LOVES fire trucks? Well, all the county fire equipment is getting washed and polished for the big day! On Saturday, September 16, Schuylkill Haven will be hosting the closing of the 63rd Annual Schuylkill County Fireman's Association Convention -- a BIG parade beginning at 1 p.m. Don't miss it!
In an autumn mood yet? If not, you still have time to pick up a wooden Pumpkin blank at the Frackville Library ($10, or $5 for students and those 65+). Decorate it and return to the library by Saturday, Sept. 16 to be displayed and judged at Frackville's annual Pumpkin Festival on October 7.
Children ages 4 to 12 are invited to the library to decorate a foam pumpkin for the pumpkin parade that starts the Pumpkin Festival. Check out the library's Facebook page for times for your child's age group.
Do you prefer pen and paper or glue and glitter? Then why not write a Pumpkin Limerick (squeaky clean, of course). Send it to Frackville Business and Professional Association, PO Box 9, Frackville PA 17931 by September 27. There will be three winners and limericks will be read throughout the Pumpkin Festival.
