Mission

pumpkinfest 2022The WHS Pumpkin Festival Committee would like to cordially invite you and your families to attend the annual WHS Pumpkin Festival on Saturday, October 22 from 11-3pm on the Weston Town Green (rain date is Sunday, October 23). All proceeds will benefit Camp Sunshine, a camp for young people dealing with terminal illnesses. If you would like to learn more about Camp Sunshine, please use this link.

We are planning a wonderful day of Halloween and fall themed activities, including pumpkin carving, food sales and a silent auction. Children can expect to participate in a variety of activities including arts and crafts, wish cards, games and face painting.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone there!

If you are unable to attend this event and still want to support our students in their efforts to raise money for Camp Sunshine, please consider donating to our JustGiving page. Thank you for your support!

This annual October event on the Town Green raises money for Camp Sunshine (https://www.camp sunshine pumpkin festivals.org/weston-pumpkin-festival), a camp in Maine for children suffering from life threatening illnesses.
 
Camp Sunshine, set on Lake Sebago, has the distinction of being the only program in the nation whose mission is to address the impact of a life threatening illness on every member of the immediate family – the ill child, the parents and the siblings. Since its inception, Camp Sunshine has provided a haven for over 30,000 individuals from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds.
 
Organized by Weston High School student volunteers, Pumpkin Festival is an annual fundraiser to support Camp Sunshine’s mission, allowing for many more families to attend the retreat for one week.
