On Thursday, October 20, 2016 the GNGHS Community Service Club sponsored a day long pumpkin carving event for Camp Sunshine. Students were invited to come down during study halls and other free time to carve a pumpkin for this great cause. Some teachers also brought down their entire classes to help out. At the end of the day GNGHS students ended up carving 1,000 pumpkins!

Camp Sunshine is located in Casco, Maine. It is dedicated to providing a camp experience for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. They do all of this free of charge to families. The GNGHS Community Service Club has been helping them by carving pumpkins each year for the annual Festival of Pumpkins held at LL Bean. Head into Freeport on October 22 to check out the pumpkins on full display plus family games and live music.

The GNGHS Community Service club extends it’s thanks to all of the students who helped to carve, the staff who provided support, and our amazing janitorial staff who had to handle the mess. Thank you so much!
