Last days for pumpkins at Saugus Center
The “Pumpkin Patch” at First Congregational Church in Saugus Center will be open through this Monday, Oct. 31. Halloween will signal the last day of the 20th year for “The Pumpkin Patch.” Pumpkins of all sizes are still displayed on the church lawn and are available for purchase every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“We very much appreciate the support this year from the people who visit and buy pumpkins to the volunteers who unloaded the trucks and have been selling pumpkins,” Pumpkin Patch coordinator Carl Spencer said.
“The church truly enjoys providing the community with pumpkins and hosting this great fall event,” he said.
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.
