The Great Pumpkin Decorating Contest

The Great Pumpkin Decorating Contest began in 2023 as a fun addition to the many wonderful Trunk -or- Treats in the area. Early in October, Saginaw County students in grades 3-5 are able to pick up a pumpkin, free of charge, from our funeral home on Midland Rd. Celebrity judges then judge the pumpkins on different categories such as craftsmanship and creativity. There is a 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place winner in each grade, with the award being an Amazon Gift Card. In addition, the first place winner in each grade receives a pizza party for their class, courtesy of Spencer A. Skorupski & Team. The school with the most participants also receives a $250 scholarship toward their art department. Pumpkins were then donated to the following area organizations: Zauel Memorial Library, Brookdale Assisted Living, and Wellspring Lutheran Services.
