Some 200 pumpkins will be offered for sale at Brookhaven’s next food truck roundup at Blackburn Park on Oct. 1, courtesy of Brookhaven resident Collette McDonald, who will donate all proceeds to the city’s Parks & Recreation Department.

“Brookhaven is like no other city in the Atlanta area,” McDonald said in a press release. “I love to be part of and give back to this friendly, welcoming community. It has all these fun family events that make you almost think that you landed in a Norman Rockwell painting.”

Prior to serving as the District 1 Planning Commissioner for DeKalb County, McDonald, who runs Collette McDonald Associates real estate company, served on the Board of Zoning Appeals for the district.

She also served on the Board for Citizens for North DeKalb, a group that researched the viability of a city of Brookhaven.

One reply on “‘Pumpkinhaven’ coming to next Brookhaven Food Truck Roundup”

  1. Our late unlamented DeKalb County Commissioner Elaine Boyer will likely soon be in a place where pumpkins are few and far between. God bless the FBI. Wendy Butler and Collette McDonald have been Boyer’s [and each others’] active friends and business associates for years, including serving on Boyer’s Planning Commission. Wendy Butler is running for Elaine Boyer’s old position. Wendy Butler and Doug Dillard [???] provided free training to Brookhaven’s Zoning Board of Appeals. Collette McDonald, formerly working for BOTH Elaine Boyer AND Brookhaven at the same time, is now offering free “pumpkin proceeds” to Brookhaven’s Parks and Recreation as Butler’s campaign begins. If we want to stay in McDonald’s “Norman Rockwell painting’ of Brookhaven, we better start connecting some dots–fast.–Tom Reilly
