Pumpkin Fun for Everyone!

It’s  that time of year again! The only time when you can dress up like ghouls and goblins, give everybody a good scare, consume unbelievable amounts of candy, and (our personal favorite)… carve pumpkins! Pumpkin carving is a good, old-fashioned way to spend time with friends and family. So if you’re looking for an early start to your pumpkin related activities, the ENC is ready to help you out! Come to our Fall Faire and Pumpkin Patch this Sunday and join the festivities. There will be something for everybody! Also, don’t forget to support the ENC at the Community Giving Day on October 17th at Whole Foods Market in Newport Beach. – J. Sattari, ENC Intern
