Bat-O’-Lanterns, Frank-O’-Lanterns and Ghost-
O’-Lanterns were big hits with the children and parents
for “Izzy’s Saturday Events” held on October 22 at the
Provencal-Weir House. Every child received two plastic
pumpkins that they painted white, black or green.Then
each one was adorned using cut-out templates and colored
foam sheets to decorate them for the perfect Halloween
decoration.
