October means painting Ottawa pink

Posted by wlpo on October 2, 2014

Drive through downtown Peru and you’ll see purple ribbons for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Soon in downtown Ottawa you’ll see pink pumpkins in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

It’s the second year for the “Paint the Town Pink” effort in Ottawa. Next Tuesday, volunteers will gather at Jeremiah Joe’s Coffee to paint pumpkins pink in honor of someone fighting breast cancer or maybe someone who has lost the battle. The pumpkins will be placed throughout downtown Ottawa.

If you want to take part in painting Ottawa pink, be at Jeremiah Joe’s next Tuesday starting at 5:30.
