The HOPE Fund would like to thank Bryan Wasson for his hard and successful work for his senior project this year.  Bryan raised over 1,000 pumpkins and sold them on Saturday September 22 during his Fall Festival of HOPE.  Bryan created a day of activities and fun for families to attend which included a food stand, pumpkin painting/art, corn maze and other games with prizes.  Fall decorations like pumpkins, gourds, and indian corn could be purchased along with tickets for a raffle drawing to win multiple prizes that were donated by others.
