Learning for Life Program: Pumpkin Painting

The Learning for Life Program, offered by Burgess Public Health, held a group meeting on October 21, 2021. There were five families who attended virtually and several other families that sent in pictures of their painted pumpkins. Bomgaars of Onawa, IA provided pumpkins at a discounted rate and the Learning for Life staff delivered the pumpkins to each family with materials to decorate them. Parents had the opportunity to paint with their children and the children were able to show off their Halloween costumes!
