Painting pumpkins in preparation of Pecan party 

Emily Hewett, a junior at Whiteville High School, paints a window at Lauren’s Natural Hair Care in downtown Whiteville Wednesday afternoon. She and her sister Brooke, an 8th grader at Central Middle School, had been working since Monday on the volunteer project with the help of their mother and aunt in an effort to spruce up downtown ahead of Saturday’s N.C. Pecan Harvest Festival. Staff photo by Justin Smith.
