“Last year I think we had almost as much fun as the kids did, with the face-painting and the pumpkin-painting, there were smiles for miles! And you haven’t lived until you enjoy sharing in a community potluck, you never know what you’ll get but it’s always delicious,” says a volunteer who helped out at last year’s event.
