Pumpkin Auction at Morris Grove Elementary

The Pumpkin Auction is here! For the past six years, the fifth-grade Art Club at Morris Grove Elementary has hand-painted artificial pumpkins to auction as a means of raising money for The United Way. This year, however, the proceeds will be divided equally between the United Way, the Art Club, and the fifth-grade Sound to Sea scholarship.  

Over 30 pumpkins are displayed in the school lobby - directly in front of the office. They are ideal for decorating any home or office for the holidays. Because they are artificial, you can enjoy them for years to come.

Bidding opened on Monday morning, October 24, and continues through Friday, October 28 at noon. Bidding is open to any adult.  Phone calls or emails will be made on Friday afternoon to the individual with the highest bid for each pumpkin. 

Art Teacher Becky Springer wants to thank the community for its continued support of our student artists and this wonderful tradition.
