Preparations for the Edy Ridge Carnival continue with work to create unique auction items. Fifth grade classrooms took photos with celebrity mascots. Friday, Puddles came to Edy Ridge from the University of Oregon. There was enough time to walk through some classrooms for some surprise visits. Earlier this month, Benny the Beaver came from Corvallis, and Blaze came from the Rose Garden. Auction posters will be available for bid at the Edy Ridge Carnival on Friday, March 8.
