Here is a before and after question for you.
How do you get from this…
It turns out the answer is: With the help of SEVENTY-ONE extraordinary volunteers!
In case you haven’t noticed (and how could you not notice?!?) the pumpkins are here! The Pumpkin Patch looks great, our church members have been doing a terrific job taking shifts at the sales table, and our annual mission fundraiser is off and running.
It would not have been possible without the help of 71 volunteers who showed up early this past Saturday morning to help us unload. It was the biggest crew of workers anyone could remember, and they made short work out of a tough job. We were able to unload 1164 pumpkins from the truck…and we did it in just about an hour!
Thank you to everyone who helped out (and for everyone who brought a friend or two or fifteen to help!). Thank you to everyone working the sales table. Thanks to Jan and Julie and Nancy for all of their hard work behind the scenes organizing everything.
Stop by sometime to see it…or to work it…or to buy a pumpkin (or two or fifteen!). Our share goes to underwrite our missions budget, so it couldn’t go to a better cause!
Yours in the journey, Rev. Brian
