Carteret Street United Methodist Church fall bazaar approaches; Pumpkin patch open

The Carteret Street United Methodist Church's annual fall bazaar will be held Saturday, October 13 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church at 408 Carteret Street.

The event is free and open to the public with baked goods, frozen foods and other items available. Also offered is a silent auction, fall planting items, and "junque", tools, crafts, toys and games booths. Concessions will be sold throughout the day.

The Pumpkin Patch will also be open, and there will be Kids' Games. This event is fun for the entire family. All proceeds benefit church missions and programs.

The Pumpkin Patch is open daily as of October 1 with thousands of pumpkins for sale.

The Pumpkin Patch, sponsored by the Carteret Street Youth, is open to the public and offers pumpkins of all shapes and sizes for sale. School trips are also available. All proceeds raised benefit Carteret Street's youth ministries.

The pumpkins are grown in New Mexico by Navajo Indians and are shipped directly to Carteret Street as a gesture of faith. Carteret Street, in turn, sells the pumpkins, reports the sales and receives a portion of the overall sales.
