More pumpkins arrived Saturday; Pioneer Charter School students helped unload the latest truck at “Pumpkin Patch”
Visit the Pumpkin Patch! It offers a great way to get in the fall spirit. Another “Pumpkin Truck” arrived at First Congregational Church in Saugus Center last Saturday (Oct. 15). Plenty of pumpkins of all sizes are displayed on the church lawn and will be available for purchase every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Halloween.
“We very much appreciate all of the volunteers who participated in the unloading of the truck,” Pumpkin Patch coordinator Carl Spencer said. “In particular, we’d like to thank the students from the Pioneer Charter School of Science in Saugus for their help in unloading this truck and the previous truck. Their help was outstanding and much appreciated. Without their help, the task would have been impossible.”
Volunteers are also needed to help staff the various shifts for the selling of pumpkins. If you are interested, please contact Carl Spencer at 781-233-9196 or just stop by and sign up.
Saugus is one of many communities receiving pumpkins from the Navajo Reservation near Farmington, N.M., working with a program called Pumpkin Patch USA, which coordinates the destination of the pumpkins. The church and the Navajo Reservation both benefit from the pumpkins.
