Just in time for Halloween and Fall decorating, it’s the K-9 Pumpkin Frenzy from the Friends Of All Animals (FOAA).
From now until October 31, the FOAA is selling specially decorated pumpkins at the Lebanon Farmers Market during regular Market hours Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The pumpkins (yes, they’re real) are embellished with a handle painted police blue and some glitter.
The Pumpkin Frenzy is organized by former Lebanon City Councilman, business man, and concerned citizen Tony Matula to raise money for the City of Lebanon Police Department K-9 Unit Fund.
The K-9 Fund is used for a number of different things: bullet-proof vests for the K-9 officers (the dogs), veterinary expenses, dog food, safety upgrades to the K-9 vehicles, and eventually to bring the K-9 force back to its full complement of two police dogs.
K-9 Frenzy pumpkins are priced at $4 for small, $5 for medium size and $6 for a large and come with a bag to carry it home.
The pumpkins were harvested from a farm in Myerstown owned and operated by Mike Firestine. Decorating supplies were provided by Dr. Jeffrey Yocum and Dr. George Fava. Large brown paper bags are from John and Karen Leffler. Of course, decorating and sale of the pumpkins is the work of FOAA.
Support your Lebanon Police K-9 Unit with a Pumpkin Frenzy purchase now through October 31 at the Lebanon Farmers Market.
