Service - Helping AUMC Unload Pumpkins!

Posted on Sep 28 2020 - 3:27pm
Changes this year to unloading pumpkins on Oct 3rd and Oct 17th.   They will be done in shifts and you must sign up on the Signup Genius below.  This is one of the opportunities to give back to the organization that supports us in all we do.  This DOES count as service hours. 
Each year, the Arapaho UMC Pumpkin Patch brings our local community together and helps serve the Navajo pumpkin farms in New Mexico.
After much discussion, we have decided as a church to continue our Pumpkin Patch with precautions. 

We have some different procedures this year and will *not* have lines of people passing pumpkins.
  • Instead, we will have two shifts of people to unpack the pumpkins from pallets and distribute them in our yard. 
  • This will be done with wheelbarrows and wagons (if you have either, please bring it)
  • Masks and social distancing will be required.
We would love to have as many Troop 444 helpers as possible!  Many in our congregation are not able to participate in the unloading, and scouts have always been so important on unload days.  

This year, we are getting deliveries on Oct 3rd and Oct 17th. We have 2 shifts for distribution at 11am and 1pm, and masks and distancing will be required. 
Scouts and parents are also welcome to sign up for a shift to help sell the pumpkins with a church member.  Please sign up through the link below.
