This October we asked our parish to carve jack-o-lanterns for the Essex Fire Department and for Halloween! We had ten entries from friends and family for the four categories: Cutest, Funniest, Scariest, and Most Creative; and our pumpkin carvers did not disappoint!

First Place: Cutest 

Cora Padelli won first place for Cutest due to her kind heart, and will receive a gift card within the next week to Toys Ahoy in Essex! 

First Place: Funniest 

Matt Beisser won first place for Funniest due to his funny face pumpkins for the Essex Fire Station Jack-o-Lantern Display! Matt will receive a gift card within the next week to Essex Coffee and Tea!

First Place: Scariest 

Peter Coles won first place for Scariest due to his menacing Pokemon face! Matt will receive a gift card within the next week to Essex Coffee and Tea!

First Place: Most Creative 

Will Tewart won first place for Most Creative due to his fabulous Angel Fish! Will has also won a gift card to Toys Ahoy in Essex, and will receive it within the next week! 

We hope all of you enjoyed carving pumpkins with your families this year, and we are thrilled to reward your creative talents by supporting our local Essex vendors for each prize winner! However, we also wanted to give an honorable mention to all the others who sent in photos this year.
