The Pumpkin Patch Is Coming... Volunteers Needed!
The Pumpkins Are Coming! Volunteers Needed!
First delivery: Sunday, October 5
4pm; Hot Dog Supper afterwards
Second delivery: Sunday, October 19
The Pumpkin Patch will soon appear, and we are in need of helpers of all ages and abilities. The pumpkins arrive Sunday, October 5 and Sunday, October 19. Both deliveries are scheduled for 4pm. Dinner will be served to all volunteers following both deliveries.
The more volunteers, the faster the unloading. We have wagons for the heavier pumpkins and create “passing lines” for all other pumpkins. We will have “Sign-up” sheets in the Fellowship Hall on Sundays, September 14, 21, and 28 from 9am to 12:30pm.
School-age students needing “service-hours” for school organizations are encouraged to assist with one or both unloadings, The Fall Festival on Saturday, October 18, and for daily work in “the patch”.
For more information, please contact Ginger Frasier at 713-412-2104 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
