Thank you to all those who attended the pumpkin coach dedication. This historic pumpkin carriage came from the Babbitt playground where it was a joy for generations of children. One of our Lions found it in Mina and the Hawthorne Lions Club decided to obtain it for Lion’s Park and we are proud to be part of it.
We had one of periodic sandwich fundraisers together the money to purchase the carriage. Our fundraiser was a success and our determination to obtain the carriage brought donations from other organizations, businesses and citizens.
We’d like to thank: Scott Inman of Golden Gate Truck Stop; Wanda Millsap of Hawthorne Ordnance Museum; Georgiana Mayne of the Mineral County Museum and all those individuals from the community for their generous donations. Mount Grant Hospital staff for their generous sandwich order. The many citizens of Mineral County who purchased our sandwiches.
We’d also like to thank our Lion’s Club members and volunteers for their time, support and hard work.
We thank Eric Hamrey and Mineral County Public Works, including Richard and Ray Dudley and Paul Toninato for moving the carriage to Hawthorne and installing it in the park.
Eric Peterson for restoration work on the carriage, spending 3 ½ days restoring.
Last but not least Deputy Holland and the inmate garden for providing pumpkins and Stephanie Keuhey for coordinating the pumpkin patch for the children and bringing them to the park for the celebration.

The Fall Festival was a great success. We from University of Nevada Cooperative Extension and Mineral County Park and Recreation would like to thank all of those who participated in the event. Without your help, it would not have been possible. Special thank you to Financial Horizons Credit Union, Pizza Factory, Old Nevada Pizza and Corner Stone Ready Mix for your prize donations.
The staff at the CAHS office would like to thank Cooperative Extension for all the food they collected at the Harvest Festival. We would also like to thank all the families that donated the food at this event. Not only did the kids and families enjoy themselves, but the food collected at the Festival will help feed families in Mineral County.
