Charlotte & Pumpkin make their debut at School Crossing

School Crossing, an educational toy and teaching supply store, located in the Monticello Marketplace Shopping Center, will sponsor a meet and greet with local celebrities "Charlotte & Pumpkin" two Juliani mini-pigs who are known throughout Williamsburg. This free event will be held at School Crossing on Saturday, March 25th from 11:00am to 1:00pm.

Only a few months ago, mini-pig Pumpkin had a very uncertain future. At the age of 5, she was looking for a new forever home and she had recently had her last round of piglets. Ryan and Melissa Phillips heard about her situation and decided to adopt her. They also adopted one of her babies so that she could experience the joys of motherhood. Now Pumpkin and her piglet Charlotte are two Juliani mini-pigs on a mission. Their hope is to show just how amazing pigs can be and they want to spread a message of love and compassion for animals everywhere.
