The Great Pumpkin arrived at the Stein Campus a week early and brought several of his friends with him. Clients from all of the adult units carved out time this month to decorate Styrofoam pumpkins. The result was an amazing just-for-fun contest with 55 entries!
Selecting the pick of the patch was difficult, but five were singled out for being especially gourd-geous:
Funniest Pumpkin: Robert J. (Robert is known for wearing cool sunglasses, and decided to create a self-portrait pumpkin, complete with green shades.)
Most Colorful Pumpkin: Karen Baranowski (Karen loves making jewelry, and so it’s no wonder she bedecked her multicolored creation with beads.)
Scariest Pumpkin: Roger Mai (Roger’s creepy masterpiece features a spooky spider weaving a wonderfully intricate web.)
Most Creative Pumpkin: Mary Collins (Mary added a touch of nature to her pretty pumpkin, perching a butterfly on its head.)
Best in Show Pumpkin: Tracy Smith (Tracy, who can only use one of her hands, used pipe cleaners to add perky personality to her jolly jack-o’-lantern.)
All the pumpkin artists were awarded with ice cream to celebrate their amazing work.
