The Pumpkins are Coming!
Are you ready for some normalcy and familiar traditions? Do you want to bring joy to our community through our cherished ministry (and biggest fundraiser)? If so, you will be glad to know that the Great St. Augustine’s Pumpkin Patch is about to commence!
Tent set up will take place on Monday, September 27, and the first load of pumpkins arrives on Wednesday, September 29 at 5:00 pm! We need lots of volunteers for the unloading, with the promise of Chef Andre’s delicious hot dogs and chili at the finish. More volunteers are needed beginning Thursday, September 30 and continuing through Halloween to cashier, greet visitors and measure pumpkins. Sign up is very easy and user friendly: just click here to select your shifts. Working in the patch is fun and rewarding. If at all possible (and we are aware that in some circumstances there are many challenges on the home front), we are asking each parishioner to sign up for at least one shift during the season. The second truck will arrive on Wednesday, October 13, so once again come participate in the unloading and enjoy those hot dogs. And bread makers, we will be asking you for your talents to provide pumpkin loaves for the cause.
As we all know, this has been a challenging year for our Church, but the resilience of our St. Augustine’s family continues to see us through. The Pumpkin Patch is critical to generating funds necessary for the church’s financial needs. In addition, it is so important to our community, many of whom have been coming to “The Patch” for years. Your help is essential in making these thing happen. We look forward to seeing you in the field of orange soon! If you have any questions, please call Patrick Goodman.
