    Kids, make your plans for the most awesome pumpkin decorating contest ever! MAC is having a "boo-tiful" pumpkin contest in October for Mattoon school-aged kids K-12. There will be prizes for the best decorated pumpkins, so put on your creative thinking caps! (Please - no carved pumpkins - they won't last through the contest.) Print out the flier here for the official rules and entry form. Entries are accepted at our office in the depot Oct. 12-14 and will be on display in the Lone Elm Room throughout the contest. Ready... set... decorate!
