Sunday, October 17, 2010 from 1 – 5 p.m.
Evergreen Farms is hosting a book signing with local children's book author Heather Gephart during the 10th Annual Pumpkin Hunt on Sunday, October 17, 2010 from 1 – 5 p.m. “What’s That All About? Fall Events” is a children's book that focuses on significant events that occur throughout Fall, including, Halloween, Election Day, Daylight Saving Time, Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving.
“As a retired school teacher, I believe that reading with your children is one of the most important things you can do as a family,” said Beth Walterscheidt, co-owner of Evergreen Farms. “With our Pumpkin Hunt going on right now, Gephart’s book is a great education tool for parents that visit the farm.”
The purpose of the book is to educate children, in a fun and simple format, about the real meaning behind the events we take part in. It also touches on the importance of being observant of the world around us and how we can all learn from that.
“My passion has always been for creative writing and making a positive difference in the lives of others, especially children,” said Gephart. “I hope my new book helps kids understand the meaning behind the events we take part in and how important it is to observe the world around us.”
Customers are welcome to visit with the author and purchase a signed copy of the book. The book will be on sale at Evergreen Farms Christmas Trees and is also available on Amazon.com.
The Pumpkin Hunt is a family-friendly event where children of all ages can enjoy fall activities, like picking out a pumpkin from the field, taking a hay ride to hunt pumpkins in the Christmas tree field, getting lost in the maze, launching pumpkins and more. The event includes free admission and some events cost $2-4 a person. All activities are ongoing throughout the day, allowing families to customize their experience at the farm. The Pumpkin Hunt is held the last four weekends in October, Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 – 5 p.m.
