On October 7th, members of the Chatham High School Football team, cheerleader squad and coaches unloaded 3,000-plus pumpkins and gourds in preparation for the 8th Annual Pumpkin Patch at the Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township.
Under the veteran leadership of Carolyn Smith, the group worked for several hours to unload the truck from the Navajo Agriculture Products Industry (NAPI) in Farmington, New Mexico. The Pumpkin Patch is now open and will run through October 31st or or until all of the pumpkins are sold. 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, the church is also supporting the Navajo tribe that grows the pumpkins each year.  
Schools, early childhood centers and Nursery School 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 Township.
