Pumpkins for Pigs!

Don’t just throw that Halloween pumpkin in the trash!  Give it to a pig!  Pumpkins are great, nutritious snacks for pigs( and chickens).  On Friday November 2nd, Ridge parents will be available at the school to collect your pumpkins for the pigs.  Of course, painted pumpkins can not be eaten but carved pumpkins without the candle can be gobbled up.
