Girl Scouts Visit Sterling House for Pumpkin Caroling
Since the 1960s, children of all ages have watched Charlie Brown’s friend Linus, clutching his blanket, waiting with Sally in the pumpkin patch for the Great Pumpkin to rise up and bring toys to all good little boys and girls. During this TV classic, the Peanut gang stops by the pumpkin patch before they head out to go trick-or-treating, and Linus asks if they came to sing pumpkin carols. No pumpkin carols are sung during the show, but Girl Scout Troop 208, dressed in costumes, made an early Halloween visit to the residents of the Sterling House, an assisted living home, and sang several Halloween songs.
