Pequea Pumpkins Raise Money

The Goodness Gorilla, Goodwin, and his sidekick, Benny the Benevolent Banana, challenged the students at Pequea Elementary to design a pumpkin based on their favorite books. Fancy Nancy, Clifford, The Cat in the Hat, Charlotte, Sister Bear, SpongeBob, and a number of other beloved storybook characters are on display for everyone to enjoy. The pumpkins are arranged by grade level and students are asked to vote for their favorites.  Milk jugs hold the votes using the following criteria – one penny is equal to one vote – silver coins and paper money are votes against. The grade with the most votes will decide which charity receives the money. The Goodness Gorillas, Pequea’s student council, sponsors numerous community projects throughout the school year.
