Alisha's Pink Pumpkin Painting Party was held at Bradford Research Center Oct. 18. More than 100 pink pumpkins were sold to help raise funds for women who need mammograms and to raise awareness for breast cancer. Superintendent Tim Reinbott planted the half-acre field of "Porcelain Doll" variety pumpkins as a donation to the organization. Visitors to the event were able to purchase a pumpkin and decorate it with inspirational quotes and other decorations. Christie McCullough and her six-year-old son Jacob paint their pumpkins here.
