CLIFTON FORGE — After Clifton Forge Main Street made the decision to cancel their downtown Halloween events, they were left with a dilemma — what to do with 100 pumpkins.
Using some creative minds, CFMS decided to go ahead and use the pumpkins.
The CFMS Board of Directors agreed that “in times like these, perhaps we need to come together and share our thoughts of what we can be thankful for while creating festive decorations for the community.”
Recently, CFMS decorated the Sonabank plaza with bales of hay, pumpkins, and corn shocks. The area can be used by anyone who would like to write notes of thanks or gratitude and share that with the rest of the community.
CFMS invite the public to use one of the Sharpies on hand and share their notes of thanks and gratitude on the pumpkins.
Anyone wishing to take one of the smaller pumpkins to bake a Thanksgiving pie, please do so beginning on Monday, Nov. 23, and share your pie and gratitude with others.
CFMS invites you to visit the display located at the Sonabank plaza to either share your words of thanks or just stroll through the area and let the words of others inspire you.
The decorations with be up through the end of November, weather permitting.
