Sesquicentennial Issue

This is the 150th issue of the Pulse! We hope we’ve continued to deliver on our mission to reliably deliver timely, relevant stories, people news, and important events every week. The idea is to have you read and then say, “I learned something today.”

Fall Festival and Pumpkin Palooza 2018

Wet weather didn’t dampen the spirits of all who attended this year’s Fall Festival. More than 1,000 enjoyed the annual autumnal treats and voting for their favorite Pumpkin Palooza entry. Thanks to those who volunteered and quickly turned the cafeteria into a delightful venue for this fall favorite. Photos by Tina Encarnacion.
