Each Fall our Church has a Pumpkin Patch set up on the lawn - complete with scarecrows, story-telling time (the school children will come at scheduled times to be regaled with stories by a marvelous Scarecrow - former teacher - who has been doing this as long as and before we have lived in Seguin).
Thousands of people visit the Pumpkin Patch during this time. A couple of years ago we were eating barbecue at what we jokingly refer to as the Belmont Social Club (just a great barbecue place that doesn't look like any kind of club). Anyway - when we were there with some friends, a couple came into the cafe wearing the FUMC Pumpkin Patch tee-shirts and mentioned that they lived in London, England and just happened to be driving down Austin Street when they saw the hundreds of pumpkins and folks all over the place, having such a great time - and they had to stop! This Pumpkin Patch has been great for the community!
