See You Next Year!

The Zanesville Pumpkin Auction is a wrap for this year. Thanks so much to everyone who participated. We appreciate everyone who came out to buy pumpkins, all of the businesses that graciously donated to our silent auction, and every volunteer who helped bring this event to life.

Our primary goal for this year was to positively impact the community. We believe we accomplished that goal. Thank you!

We also raised over $1,000 for our campus building restoration project.

We especially want to thank the following businesses for their donations:

Chapman’s Coffee House (New Concord, Ohio)
The Color Pallet Salon (Zanesville, Ohio)
Curly Girl Farm (Zanesville, Ohio)
Fall Chiropractic (Cambridge, Ohio)
Melissa Pauquette Photography (Zanesville, Ohio)
Pappy’s Plants (Roseville, Ohio)
PV’s Pumpkin Patch (Frazeysburg, Ohio)
Rosa Villa Designs (Somerset, Ohio)
Urban Floral (Zanesville, Ohio)
Wally’s Pizza (New Concord, Ohio)

We also want to thank the law office of Gottlieb, Johnston, Beam, and Dal Ponte for graciously allowing us to use their parking lot. And thank you to Prater’s Highway Market for helping us to fill in our inventory.

We look forward to seeing you at the second annual Zanesville Pumpkin Auction on Saturday, October 2, 2021!

This super-cute goose-shaped gourd centerpiece is surrounded by a variety of colorful tiny gourds, nestled on a bed of straw and arranged in a sturdy ceramic dish. The potted mum is quite full and just beginning its bloom season.

Pappy’s Plants is a family-owned greenhouse currently offering mums, pumpkins, and cornstalk bundles, as well as succulents and other plants earlier in the growing season. Learn more at their Facebook page.
