Club Connerton previously has hosted several autumn events for residents in the Land O’ Lakes community — but this year, because of COVID-19, the activities were reimagined, to follow social distancing guidelines.
Instead of the adult beer garden and costume contests, Gregg Svendgard, Club Connerton’s general manager, and his staff, came up with some new activities.
There was the annual Monster Mash Dash Costume 5K Run, a pumpkin patch and a scarecrow-themed hay bale to give families a backdrop for photos.
Staff members disinfected pumpkins regularly, and plastic gloves were supplied to those picking out their perfect pumpkin.
The pumpkins were free, and each children received a bag with candy and a craft-to-go, while supplies lasted.
