The Meadville Community will hold the Pumpkin Festival Saturday October 13th.  The local FFA Chapter will kick off the day with a free community appreciation breakfast in the community center.  Chapter President Mason Kiehl says they’ll serve pancakes, eggs and sausage.  

“It’s going to be a free will donation, anybody that wants to can come.  It’ll be from 7 to 9 a.m.” 

The meal is open to anyone who would like to attend.  Members will be up bright and early that morning getting things prepared.

“We usually do one breakfast a year, we’ve gotten pretty good at it.” 

The chapter has other things on tap for the youngest Meadville residents.

“Were going to have a few activities throughout the day at the Pumpkin Festival.”  Kiehl says, “we’ve got a peddle tractor pull and a petting zoo.  if you’ve got a kid, come on out and you can enjoy that too.”
