Nine Clatsop County 4-H members met at the Clatsop Care Center Oct. 23 for the 4-H community service project of the month, pumpkin carving. The 4-H members brought their own pumpkins and carving tools to the Clatsop Care Center, where residents enjoyed the Halloween tradition of carving scary, happy and creative faces.

The pumpkins are now placed throughout the building to help residents get in the spirit of Halloween.

Future 4-H community service projects include handmade Thanksgiving place mats to be placed in care centers throughout the county, and handmade holiday ornaments which will be place on Wishing Trees during the holiday season.

For information about the 4-H program, call 325-8573.
