Pumpkins from the Navajo Agriculture Products Industry (NAPI) in Farmington, New Mexico will arrive in Chatham for the 8th Annual Pumpkin Patch held on the front lawn of the Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township.  The Patch opens Wednesday, October 8th at 2pm.

The Chatham High School Football team, coaches, cheerleaders and local Boy Scout Troops will once again be on hand to help transform the front lawn of the church into a pumpkin patch.  Under the leadership of Carolyn Smith, the groups will work in teams to unload over 3000 pumpkins of all sizes and gourds.  Net proceeds from the pumpkin sales will be donated to the Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center in Morristown and the Community FoodBank of New Jersey in Hillside.   Through this effort we are also supporting the Navajo tribe that grows the pumpkins each year.

The Pumpkin Patch will be open to the community each weekday from 2:00pm - 6:00 pm beginning on Wednesday, October 8th and on weekends from 10:00am – 6:00pm.  Sales will run through October 31st or until all of the pumpkins are sold.  Early childhood and Nursery groups are invited and may call the church office at 973-635-2340 to schedule a visit.  We have just the right size pumpkins for little hands!

The Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township is located at 240 Southern Blvd in Chatham.
