ASI's Annual Pumpkin Run
Autism Society of Indiana's 2nd Annual Pumpkin Run was held October 12 on Jefferson Hill in Logansport. Peak Community Services sponsored the event again this year. Peak's Habilitation staff held a bake sale to raise funds to help the family of Nikki Savini, who was an avid supporter for those with autism before her tragic accident in 2012. Senator Randy Head was the event's emcee and Nicole Hicks, ASI Ally for this area was the coordinator for the event. Maconaquah's Future Farmers of America (FFA) provided a petting zoo for the day. The pictures above don't quite capture the fun that was had by everyone there.
Over 100 people attended the Halloween Dance at Peak Community Services on Friday October 25. About 25 of the costumed attendees participated in the Halloween Stroll while the judges (Kathy Coffing and Tom Maggart) selected the costumes they liked best. The winners were three goblins, a kitty cat, a cowboy, and a ninja hero. Refreshments included Spanish hot dogs, chips, vegetables and desserts. Everyone appreciated the food contributions. The Recreation Committee sponsored the dance. They are Bonnie Bell, Janet Thomson, Kathy Coffing (Board Member), Larri Lacombe, and Linda Klinck.
The attendees also voted on their favorite decorated pumpkin. Nine teams of Peak staff members submitted their pumpkins for judging. The winners of the pumpkin decorating contest were Carolyn Burk, and Ken and Brenda Graves with their pumpkin in a pumpkin.
To add to the fun in October the Habilitation and Work Services staff dressed up during the last couple of days of the month. Needless to say, everyone at Peak had some fun in October.
