Pumpkin Patch Unload
Over 25 volunteers withstood the constant rain to unload the pumpkins on Saturday, November 11. The team unloaded over 2,500 pumpkins that were delivered from the Navajo Reservation in Farmington, New Mexico. Rain or shine, come visit St. John's Pumpkin Patch to enjoy the fall and purchase your Halloween pumpkins. More information can be found here.
The annual Pancake Breakfast fundraiser, held on Saturday, September 27, was met with great success. Fellowship and food (40 lbs of sausage alone) were shared both indoors and grill side. The unusually warm autumn weather provided a most welcome setting for the well over 150 people in attendance throughout the morning. In keeping with the breakfast, the Women of the ELCA assemblage host ambitious fundraisers during the year with the sole purpose of providing outreach gifts to local and global organizations.
Backpacks for Stamford Children
This summer, St. Johns Lutheran Church purchased new L. L. Bean backpacks for 44 children in the Stamford area. This was made possible through several donations from congregation members. The backpacks were then customized with school supplies the children need based on the school that each child is to attend this fall. Supplies were collected from community children attending our Vacation Bible School program as well as from additional congregation members and their friends. Both kids and adults worked together to fill the backpacks full of supplies and a special treat. They were distributed at a spaghetti dinner held for the children and their families in August. Everyone involved had a good time and agreed that it was a very worthwhile project!
