Ah, fall. The smell of the crisp, cool air, the reds and yellows of the leaves changing color, the dull thud of thrown pumpkins hitting the ground …
For the second year in a row, Parkland High School students and teachers will be chucking pumpkins for charity.
Last year, the Spanish Honor Society raised more than $300 for meals on wheels in the contest.
Students may donate money to the teacher they believe can throw a pumpkin the farthest or, for $5, compete with each other for the right to compete against the teachers.
The chuckin’ gets under way at 3:15 p.m. outside the high school’s C-wing.
What else is going on in the South Whitehall area today?
- The Parkland School Board meets Tuesday at 7 p.m.
- Wherever you go, you might want to bring a jacket along. The high temperature is expected to top out at about 63 degrees with a bit of a west wind.
