Pumpkins begin to fill the lawn Saturday morning at First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) for the 2017 Pumpkin Fest. Volunteers unloaded a truck load of pumpkins and sales began on Sunday. Profits from the annual event are shared with local community agencies. This year, groups scheduled to receive funds are: Shawnee Rescue Mission, Volunteer Health Center (Pott County free clinic), Hope House at Youth and Family Resources, and The Jim Thorpe Academy.
