Literacy Fun with Pumpkins & Staff!

1st Ever Parklands-Turner Pumpkin Character Contest

The Parklands-Turner's staff got into the fall spirit by having a pumpkin decorating contest with a twist. Staff were instructed to pick a book and decorate a pumpkin to resemble a character or a scene from the book.  Staff worked hard decorating their  pumpkins using lots of paint, hot glue guns, and construction paper. You will find variety of character pumpkins from the famous Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch to Yoda from Star Wars and the not-so-famous The Good Egg. The pumpkin characters are on display at the service desk. We are asking customers young and old to vote on their favorite book character. The staff member that wins gets a lovely medal and bragging rights for our first ever pumpkin character contest. Below is a list of the selected titles. Check them out now!
