IT’S HALLOWEEN! –
Madison Smith, 3 and Kierra Horvath, 8 would periodically tire of their pumpkin carving chores and retreat to enjoyment of a token-driven machine at Daugherty’s party barn in Bellville recently. The two youngsters joined about 25 adult youngsters in a recent carving party given annually by Shelly Smith.
Madison is the daughter of Jamie Smith and she is Shelly’s granddaughter. Kierra is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wendell Swank of Bellville.
These 16 pumpkins lined up for their pre-judging portrait at the carving event.
Richard Stone of Bellville is pictured with his grand-prize winning effort, His carving tied with one done by host Shelly but she graciously passed the winnings to Stoney for his entirely free-form, non-patterned design. Besides, we have it on good authority Shelly has a tradition of respect for her elders.
