To the Community of Bryan County and all our neighbors:
Thanks for making this year’s Pumpkin Patch a success! Judging by the number of people who were there, the smiles on the children’s faces, and the rate at which we sold pumpkins, I think that the attendees would agree that it was a good day.
In four short hours on Oct. 6, the Richmond Hill Garden Club, the sponsors of the Pumpkin Patch event, sold 110 mums, almost 1,000 pumpkins, and a little over $1,000 worth of baked goods. In addition, there were kids playing games until it was time to close up and go home.
The Pumpkin Patch is an annual event, the garden club’s fundraiser that allows it to complete its many community projects. These projects include maintaining landscaping at its garden in Henderson Park, the library, and other spots in town, distributing daffodil bulbs (1,500 of them) during the Christmas Parade, purchasing gardening and nature books for the Richmond Hill Library, donating to local charities such as the Way Station, and providing a $1,000 scholarship for a deserving senior at Richmond Hill High School.
On behalf of the Garden Club, thank you, and see you again next year.
