The 6th Annual Pumpkin Patch at the Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township is open!

The Chatham High School Football team and coaches, the Chatham High School Cheerleaders, and local Boy Scout Troops walked onto the lawn of the Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township to unload 3,000+ pumpkins on Wednesday. Under the leadership and organization of the church's Witness and Outreach Chair Carolyn Smith, the groups worked teams to unload 3,000+ pumpkins and gourds. Net proceeds from the pumpkin sales will be donated to the Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center, Inc. in Morristown and the Community FoodBank of New Jersey in Hillside.

In addition, this year's Octoberfest events will extend to two days this year beginning Saturday, October 6th from 12:00 noon-2:00 p.m. Soft drinks, hotdogs, and entertainment will also be offered in the Patch from 12:00 noon - 2:00 p.m. on Sunday October 7th. All proceeds go to local missions.

The Pumpkin Patch will be open to the community each weekday from 12:00 - 6:00 p.m. beginning on Thursday, October 4th. The Patch will be open from 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. during the weekends and will run through October 31st or until all of the pumpkins are sold.
