Calhoun Times - - FRONT PAGE - Staff Re­ports

The Cal­houn First Pres­by­te­rian Church, lo­cated at 829 Red­bud Road in Cal­houn, will be sell­ing hun­dreds of pump­kins again this year.

“We will be re­ceiv­ing pump­kins for our an­nual pump­kin patch on Septem­ber 29,” says church mem­ber Judy Gree­son. “The church re­ceives its ship­ment of pump­kins from the Navajo In­dian Reser­va­tion, a 1200acre plateau in Farm­ing­ton, New Mex­ico that em­ploys more than 700 Na­tive Amer­i­cans.”

Sev­eral va­ri­eties of pump­kins in dif­fer­ent sizes, shapes and col­ors will be de­liv­ered on Fri­day, Sept. 29. The church will be­gin sell­ing to the public through­out Oc­to­ber.

Ap­prox­i­mately 70 per­cent of the pro­ceeds go back to Pump­kin Patch USA and the Navajo In­dian Na­tion.

“So many peo­ple come to­gether to help with the pump­kin patch,” Gree­son says. “Stu­dents from Ash­worth Mid­dle School, along with Gor­don Cen­tral High School’s FFA help un­load more than 4,000 pump­kins.”

Along with pump­kins, the church will also sell corn stalks, wheat straw, gourds, boiled peanuts, El­li­jay fried ap­ple pies, ad mums of as­sorted size and col­ors.

The church in­vites mem­bers of the com­mu­nity throw the kids in the car, stop by, shop and take some fall pho­tos. It’s for a great cause. For more in­for­ma­tion, call CFPC at 706- 629- 4304.
