In what looks to become an ongoing family tradition, Kim and Rick Harris and families are using social media to announce their second annual pumpkin patch along with a warm welcome to people in the area to come out to their place in Sheridan Lake and take part in the festivities.
“Since this year’s pumpkin crop has managed to survive some hard-hitting hail and an outrageous Bug-Apocalypse,” the announcement begins, “we are giving them away!! That’s right—FREE PUMPKINS!!”
And what would prompt the Harris family to do such a generous thing?
“Because ‘Every Pumpkin Matters’”.
The Harris Pumpkin Patch is guaranteed to be a time packed with fun as the families will be hosting free events like hayrides, face-painting, Corn Hole games and Goodie Bag of Treats.
Hard to think of a better way for folks to spend a Sunday afternoon than sharing in the company of friends and neighbors.
When asked what prompted her family to start hosting the event, Kim referred to a heartfelt piece written on September 23rd of last year.
“As we approach Opening Day to the 1st annual Harris Pumpkin Patch, I look back on some pictures with such emotion as I see what God can do with a little seed (of faith). God has given Rick a love in his heart for His creation, His land, His plants and crops. Rick has a faith (through tough times as a farmer to wait and trust) and then truly see God’s Grace when a crop of wheat or milo can grow and profit in the worst of drought times…God is always there!”
There are four events planned, all on Sunday afternoons from 2pm to 4pm: October 6th, October 13th, October 20th and October 27th (while supplies last).
