Think pink. The Walla Walla High School volleyball team will be doing just that during Pink Night on Oct. 22 when they take on the Richland Bombers and raise money for breast cancer awareness.

Freshmen, sophomore and junior varsity teams all play at 5:30 p.m., followed by the varsity teams at 7 p.m.

Pink-hued beads, pins, pom-poms and other items will be sold. The volleyball team will be selling a limited number of pink T-shirts at the game. All proceeds from the event will benefit the St. Mary Medical Center Breast Cancer Special Needs Fund.

The Walla Walla Public School District takes the annual Care and Share food “drive” literally as donors will be able to fill buses at area grocery stores from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Oct. 19.

The need for food remains high, according to an item in the Walla Walla Public Schools Week in Review online newsletter.

There will also be food barrels at district schools Oct. 19-20 so kids and staff can make contributions.

Participants can pick a section of town in which to hand out bags at homes on Oct. 19 and then collect them Oct. 20. Peter Swant, project coordinator, said all donations will benefit the Blue Mountain Action Council Food Bank.

Yummmmmm: Carrots fresh from Walla Walla’s Welcome Table Farm are the featured Harvest of the Month vegetable in public schools.

Tasting tables will be set up in all school cafeterias on Oct. 15 to serve carrots prepared by Nutrition Services and served by volunteers. The tasting tables will also display interesting facts about carrots.

Many students in the district have visited the farm at 1812 Old Milton Highway and have grown carrots at their school, the Walla Walla Public Schools Week in Review online newsletter reported.

For more details about the farm, call 529-0772 or visit them online at welcometablefarm.com.
