    News from the Great Pumpkinette

    Members of the BPN Board will be hanging out at Nick's Uptown (Pool Room) on Sheridan Road - Sunday, 10/26 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. We will be stuffing donated candy into 150 donated CAPS bags that will be given out during the Buena Pumpkin neighbors safe trick or treating event.

    If you see a bag or two or three of candy at the store that you might want to buy, and that you might want to donate, and if you feel like stopping by Nick's Uptown for a beer (on you), and want to drop off said candy, or are inspired to drop said candy into 150 bags and rub shoulders with the BPN Board (who are confirmed chocoholics) then please come over and help us out.
