We’ve already experienced the toilet paper shortage and are hearing rumblings of an extreme paper shortage coming soon. So why not a pumpkin shortage, while we’re at it. Extreme weather across the country has wiped out many crops and, of course, the COVID pandemic continues to wreak havoc on shipping, all leading to a shortage and higher priced pumpkins just in time for Halloween.
Fear not and mark your calendars on Friday, October 22, for Pinnacle Bank – Gillette’s annual Pumpkin Patch event. The community is invited to stop by, where they will find plenty of pumpkins for the picking, tasty treats and fun for the whole family – and all for a great cause. All donations for the pumpkins will go directly to Paint Gillette Pink.
“The Pinnacle Bank Pumpkin Patch is wonderful opportunity for our community to enjoy a fun-filled afternoon, while supporting an incredible, local organization,” said Tamara Atkins, Operations Officer for Pinnacle Bank – Gillette.
“Through our circles of friends, family and community, virtually everyone has been touched by someone who has battled breast cancer and we are truly honored to help support Paint Gillette Pink with this event.”
The fun begins at 3 p.m. on Friday, October 22 at Pinnacle Bank (815 Madison Street).
Bring your family and friends to come pick a pumpkin while supplies last, enjoy apple cider, cookies and much more. The bank will have a fall-themed photo spot set-up, perfect for snapping family and group photos. “Our entire staff will be on hand to help you capture some frame-worthy pictures, too,” said Atkins.
