Five Things to Do This Weekend (Oct. 14-16): Pumpkins, Football and School Events
Welcome to "Five Things You Need to Know for the Weekend," a Dunwoody Patch column that sifts through the long list of events competing for your time to offer our pick of five things worth doing with your time off.
1. Pull out your pumpkin carving knife. All Saints Catholic Church is hosting a Pumpking sale at the church grounds every day until Halloween. The church has 1,300 pumpkins, which are being sold by to help the Knights of Columbus and the charities they support.
2. Support Dunwoody (or Marist) football. The Wildcats head down to Marist tonight to continue the rivalry across I-285. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. at Marist.
3. Recycle electronics, browse yard sales and clean up for the good of local schools. The Dunwoody High School TSA/Robotics Club is hosting a yard sale starting at 8 a.m Saturday on Ashmont Court. The Swim and Dive team is hosting an electronic recycling day at the High School starting at 9 a.m. And volunteers (anyone can volunteer) are cleaning up the high school grounds starting at 8 a.m.
4. Run for a reason. The Billary Atresia 5k Run and 1k Walk is the premier fundraising event for the Sydney Moss Fund, established to support biliary atresia (BA) research at the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Liver Center and the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Liver Disease Program. The event, which begins at Village Burger, is $30. The 5k starts at 8 a.m. and the 1k starts at 8:05 a.m.
5. Teach your kids to draw. The Dunwoody Library is hosting Comics with Kyle Puttkamer, who will be teaching children, ages 7-14, about comic book illustration and drawing. The event is free and open to the first 50 participants.
