Jeff and John, Forest and Simon, and Brannon created these works of art! In order from left to right.

Through out the evening Stephen D expressed to the boys how pumpkin carving can relate to their program; If you just rush through things your outcome will be just a regular old jack'o'lantern. If you are thorough, take your time, and pay attention to detail your outcome will be a masterpiece! The boys were encouraged to think about the kind of men they want to be, and how they want to be remembered in life!
Everyone leaves behind a Legacy! What do you want yours to be?
