S.P. kids find pumpkins galore

Published in the Current

SOUTH PORTLAND (Nov 3, 2005): In honor of the upcoming retirement of Skillin School Principal Joyce Freeman at the end of the year, after 17 years at the school and 35 years as an educator in the city, students at the school went on a pumpkin hunt on the playground and playing fields Friday.

Nearly 500 pumpkins from Highland Avenue Greenhouses were scattered around the area – one for every student and a few extra. Kids ran hither and yon, each choosing carefully the perfect pumpkin to take home a couple nights before Halloween.
