The First Congregational Church UCC’s Danny Panico “Pumpkin Patch” Scholarship recipients were recently announced. They are Ricardo Martinez, Olivia Rando and Lauren Patterson. All recipients are Saugus residents who will enter college this fall. These scholarships are one of the Church’s ways of giving back to the community that supports its annual October Pumpkin Patch fundraiser. A portion of the proceeds from the Pumpkin Patch are used to contribute in some way to the Saugus community.

This scholarship is named after Danny Panico, a longtime church member and Pumpkin Patch worker who passed away last year. The church is proud to honor him for his dedicated service.

The Pumpkin Patch will be open for business this year on September 29. All are welcome to participate in this annual event by helping to unload the delivery trucks and by volunteering to staff the daily sales of pumpkins. For information of anything to do with the Pumpkin Patch, contact Carolyn Davis 781-233-4555.
