Another Batch for “The Patch” – Second shipment of pumpkins arrived after breakdown

  (Editor’s Note: The pumpkins didn’t arrive on Saturday as planned, so “The Pumpkin Patch” sends its apologies to the volunteers who did show up – and this explanation and reassurance that there’s still plenty of pumpkins for the picking after the second shipment was delayed a day.)


Another “Pumpkin Truck” arrived at First Congregational Church in Saugus Center this past Sunday (Oct. 15). In spite of breakdown problems on Saturday, the truck arrived on Sunday afternoon with the final shipment of pumpkins. Plenty of pumpkins of all sizes are now displayed on the church lawn and will be available for purchase every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Halloween (Oct. 31).

“We very much appreciate the volunteers who participated in the unloading of the truck with all the changes and on short-notice,” Pumpkin Patch Coordinator Carl Spencer said. “A special thanks to Patrick Follis from Agganis Construction for off-loading the truck and Bob Camuso, administrator of Anything in Our Town of Saugus Facebook, for providing updates of the truck’s arrival. Their help was outstanding and much appreciated. Without their help the task would have been impossible.”

Visit the Pumpkin Patch! It offers a great way to get in the fall spirit.
