October is Coming And So Are Pumpkins


Preliminary Proclamation of John von Senden, Pumpkin Coordinator:

Pumpkins will arrive at 11:30-am, Sunday the 7th of October 2012. We will be celebrating Mass-on-the-Grass that morning at 10 a.m. with The Very Rev. Ian Markham, Dean of VTS, as our guest preacher.

Pumpkin unloading will begin immediately after the service, so wear pumpkin-appropriate attire suitable for unloading. This year we will again have two trucks the first day.  The next two trucks will arrive at 4-pm, Wednesday the 17th of October.

This is our largest fundraiser for OUTREACH and this is our Nineteenth year for this wonderful project. So how can you help now?

  • If you are new to Immanuel since last October, or you just want more information about our Pumpkin Patch, please talk to John von Senden, Jim Snow or anyone on the Outreach Committee.
  • Please start COOKING and FREEZING you own preferred recipe of SOUPS and BREADS and list the ingredients. A substantial portion of our profit comes from food sales. We have standard quart containers for soups; we’ve learned this size and container works best for both cooks and customers. Breads can be packaged as you choose. The containers are  located in the Narthex. If you run out of freezer space at home we have a freezer at church; please coordinate with Mary Taylor before using the church freezer though. Remember that pretty packaging (such as a ribbon or sticker) really helps our sales of these items. And please don’t forget the LIST OF INGREDIENTS (which helps avoid food allergy issues). If you have any questions contact Mary Taylor.
  • Talk to John von Senden or Jim Snow about becoming a team member. This is a fun and worthwhile endeavor and there are many opportunities to take a leadership role; it is also a great way to meet everyone in the Parish.
  • Start considering when in October YOU can SELL. This will be a busy pumpkin season and we need many volunteers. The SIGN-UP CALENDAR is in the Narthex!. Contact Candy Levin or Kyrah Drasheff with questions.

And save the date for Saturday the 2nd of November (after the Patch) for our Annual Harvest Dinner.
