pumpkin patch

St. Simons United Methodist Church assistant youth director Patrick Jeter catches a pumpkin as he and a host of volunteers form a line to unload 5,000 pumpkins from a semi truck Tuesday at the lot next to the church on Ocean Boulevard. The pumpkins, which came from New Mexico, are for the church’s annual pumpkin patch, a fundraiser for the church youth program for over 30 years. Patch hours are Monday through Friday from 1:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., Saturday 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., and Sunday 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.
