Pumpkin People in the Park

By Jennifer Ersalesi


The Woman’s Club of Rutherford will hold its fifth annual Pumpkin People in the Park fundraiser. From October 19th through November 2nd, there will be a number of pumpkin displays created by local community groups and businesses set up in Lincoln Park. In the past, groups such as the Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Woman's Club, Rotary Club, Junior Women's Club and various PTA's have set up unique displays in the park. Businesses such as Bill O'Sheas Florist and Gifts, Calhoun Mania Funeral Home, and ERA Justin Realty also participated.


Laura O’Connor, Board member of the Woman’s Club, explained, “Pumpkin People in the Park is a family-friendly event which supports the many worthwhile endeavors of the Woman’s Club.”



All displays will be set up on Saturday, October 19th or Sunday, October 20th and displays will be removed on Saturday, November 2nd.
