The staff of the Clinton Library, hosts of the second annual Clinton Fall Festival, wish to thank all those involved who made the afternoon of bats, watercolor painting, wool-crafting, pumpkin painting and carving, face painting and trunk or treating so much fun!
We are grateful for the funding that came from the Friends of the Clinton Library and the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation.
It is through the tireless fundraising efforts of their volunteers that most Clinton Library programs are possible.
We so appreciated Barbara Ogaard, of the Sarvey Wildlife Center, who helped everyone get a little “batty” by sharing her expertise, deftly managing to show almost all of the 119 folks who attended at least one of these mysterious creatures up close.
Carla Walsh and Cordula Hetland deserve kudos for patiently providing artistic guidance to children and adults alike in wool-crafts and watercolor painting.
And a round of applause for Carla’s team of teens, who came to face paint, and stayed to help clean up, as well.
A special thanks to the Clinton Chamber of Commerce, Christina and Jim Swan, and John and Joanne Elverum, who arrived in spooky costumes, with decorated car trunks full of treats.
Lastly, to all those who donated pumpkins for the children to paint and carve, thank you so much.
Next year, we hope to have even more pumpkins available for the families who now look forward to an event that has become a community tradition.
Thanks to you all.
