Jack o 27 Lantern 300x2661Oh My GOURD, IT’s Fall!

And our COTP’s “PUMPED” about giving you “PUMPKIN “to talk about…
It seems Okatie’s got more than just talent, we’ve got PUMPKINS. And we’re PROUD and PUMPED about it!

If this pandemic’s got you “GOURD” out of your mind, COTP’s hosting a PUMPKIN-CARVING/DRAWING contest inviting participants to “CARVE” out a little time and add a bit of SPICE to their lives. So please, do start with our PUMPKIN PATCH as your blank canvas by choosing that special pumpkin catching your eye to either draw upon, or carve out.

1.Carve or draw your best pumpkin features

2.Give your GOURDEOUS creation a fun name.

3.Email us a nice photo of your named creation with its name for entry- This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. In an effort to SPICE things up, it will be placed online anonymously referred to only by its chosen name. The winning photos linked to their participants will be revealed in the end.

4. All entries must be in by Thursday, October the 28 @ 5p.m.

First, second and third place winners will be determined by an appointed panel of judges. The winners will be announced on Halloween at noon.
1st place winner will receive $100
2nd place winner will receive $75
3rd place winner will receive $25

If you find you’re all work and no play like JACK, please don’t be “GOURD “on yourself, or feel “HOLLOW INSIDE.” “SQUASH” those feelings!

Here’s to finding out that you know more than JACK about pumpkins, GOURDGEOUS! So please, DRAW, or CARVE out and set aside a SLICE or two of time in time for our COTP’s PUMPKIN-CARVING CONTEST, won’cha?
