Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins! The Annual Free Pumpkin Giveaway, hosted by the Monument Professional Firefighters Local 4319, is celebrating its third year for the event this Saturday, October 19, at the Jackson Creek Clock Tower from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The public is invited.
Last fall, local firefighters and emergency medical technicians gave 500 pumpkins to some of the youngest community members. Families from all over the community came and picked free pumpkins. Besides giving away free pumpkins, the professional firefighters were there to show off trucks and ambulances and to meet members of the Tri-Lakes area.
Along with firetruck tours and free pumpkins, members of the Monument Professional Firefighters will give safety tips for trick or treating. This annual event is a sure way to spark the community into having a safe, fun, and Happy Halloween!
