“So much work went into this fish, I am so glad we’ll be able to use it again next year!” said elementary teacher, JoAnn Rubin.
In addition to the puppet, Pinewoods worked with the Downtown Merchants of Historic Hillsborough in organizing children’s activities for the Fresh Roots Festival before the parade. Pinewoods hosted a craft table where children painted peat pots and then planted a bean seed in starter soil. Coloring pages were also provided.
