WAITSBURG-Whether you're a soup-season person or a spooky-season person, there's no arguing that autumn is here!
If you're a spooky-season person, it is time to head down to Mr. C's Smoking Co. or Nancy's Dream Garden Center. Each business received plenty of Schulke Pumpkins to go around.
The Schulke Pumpkin Fundraiser is in its fourteenth year of fundraising for the Ronald McDonald House in memory of Cooper Schulke, who passed away in 2002 after a long battle against a brain tumor.
In 2007, Cooper's siblings Emerson and Campbell came up with the idea to start a small pumpkin patch to benefit the place the Schulke's called home for more than three months during Cooper's fight. Now, the family grows nearly thirty varieties of pumpkins that are perfect for carving, decorating, and cooking with. Blue, orange, and white are just a few of the colors to be found in a bin of Schulke Pumpkins.
Nancy's Dream Garden Center is located at 124 Warren Street, and Mr. C's Smoking Co. is at 405 Preston Avenue.
