United Methodist Church opens annual pumpkin patch

in Uncategorized by

Carteret Street United Methodist Church’s annual Fall Bazaar will be held Saturday, October 15, from 8 a.m. to
2 p.m. at the church, 408 Carteret St. in Beaufort.
The event is free and open to the public. Attendees will be able to purchase baked goods, frozen foods and other edible delicacies, participate in the silent auction, prepare for fall planting with sod and bedding plants from the Garden Shop or find treasure in the good “junque”, tools, crafts, toys and games booths. Concessions will be sold throughout the day. The Pumpkin Patch will also be open, and there will be kids’ games. This event is fun for the entire family. All proceeds benefit church missions and programs.
The Pumpkin Patch will be open daily beginning October 3. Thousands of pumpkins will be delivered October 2 at 3 p.m. The Pumpkin Patch, sponsored by the Carteret Street Youth, is open to the public and offers pumpkins of all shapes and sizes for sale. School trips are also available. All proceeds raised benefit Carteret Street’s youth ministries.
The pumpkins are grown in New Mexico by Navajo Indians and are shipped directly to Carteret Street as a gesture of faith. Carteret Street, in turn, sells the pumpkins, reports the sales and receives a portion of the overall sales.
For questions, the church office can be reached at 524-3841.
