Pumpkins of all sizes will be displayed on the church lawn and will be available for purchase every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Volunteers are also needed to help staff the various shifts for the selling of pumpkins. If interested, please contact Carl Spencer 781-233-9196 or just stop by and sign up. “The Pumpkin Patch” offers a great way to get in the fall spirit.
The Orange Glow” – a popular event that highlights autumn in Saugus Center and literally stops traffic headed up Hamilton Street – will again take over the church lawn across the street from the Town Hall building. This marks the 20th year of The Pumpkin Patch.
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.
