It’s time!! The Pumpkin Patch at Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church opened Saturday morning!
They opened October 5th and will run through the end of the month.
This will be the 28th year Wesley Memorial UMC has held The Pumpkin Patch.
It originally started to fund youth ministry and mission projects at the church.
Today, the proceeds from the Pumpkin Patch continue to support many different church projects.
“We partner with our neighborhood school, Winter Park Elementary as well as local nonprofits like WARM and Methodist Home for Children,” the church said in a press release.
They said that thanks to the funds they raise in The Patch, they have been able to repair three homes near Plymouth, NC.
The pumpkins in the patch come from the Navajo Indian reservation in New Mexico. The first of five tractor-trailer loads will arrive at the Patch in Wilmington on October 5th.
You can help unload the pumpkins Saturday morning for community service hours. Unloading will start at 8 a.m. Oct. 5th.
The Pumpkin Patch will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Saturdays and 12 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Sundays during the first two weeks they are open. After that, the Patch will stay open until 8 p.m.
Pumpkin prices start at $1 and go up in price by size. There are also several types of gourds.
