Neighborhood Association Prepares for Pumpkin Patch

It takes team work to make the scarecrows

The Newman Park Neighborhood Association is planning much more this year for its annual Halloween celebration at Newman Park. In the past, the Association has sponsored a pumpkin carving for children of all ages. This year, in addition to carving or painting pumpkins, people will be able to purchase handcrafted scarecrows and enjoy other arts and crafts. The event will take place on Saturday, October 23, beginning at 10:30 a.m. at Newman Park

Members of the Association began making scarecrows using thrift store clothing and accessories, crumpled newspaper and wooden crosses this past Saturday at the Friesenhahn home. Not all the work is done so another scarecrow-making session will take place this Saturday, October 16, from 1 to 4 also at the Friesenhahns. All are invited.

Is that Becky Friesenhahn wearing the funny mask? Robert Taylor stands by.

Just prior to the Halloween Pumpkin Patch, NPNA will hold its fall general membership meeting at 10:00. Representative Susie Byrd and her Assistant, Judy Gutierrez, will update everyone about important matters in the City of El Paso impacting Newmanistas.
