Gillette’s Great Pumpkin Patch
Church volunteer Rick Tarno measures a pumpkin for Deb Reynolds at the First United Methodist Pumpkin Patch
(Gillette, Wyo.) If you’re shopping for pumpkins, the First United Methodist Church of Gillette has them.
Every year, the church colors a hillside orange with the wannabe Jack-o-Lanterns. The pumpkins are shipped in from a Native American reservation in New Mexico, where they’re picked fresh.
Prices vary from $4 to about $35, depending on size. They also have small ones for under $2.00, as well as a selection of gordes.
All the proceeds go towards the church’s projects, including the youth group’s missions.
This Saturday, they will be holding their Harvest Bizarre from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., including hay rides from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
