A fall tradition in San Marco continued this past weekend as Southside United Methodist Church (SUMC) received their first shipment of pumpkins for the Pumpkin Patch! The program serves as a fundraiser for youth programs at the church. Be sure to stop by and pick out your pumpkin today!
Here is a reprint of additional information from www.southsidemethodist.org
“Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s got to pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one.”
-Linus, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
