It’s that time of year again when the Summer activities end, and the Fall pumpkin activities begin.

Brooke Mercer, the Director of Children’s Ministries at The First United Church of Victoria said, “We started the Pumpkin Patch about 28 years ago, it was something we wanted to do to reach out to people in our community. We’re a downtown church, so we wanted to reach out to our neighbors and make some connections and the event kind of grew and grew over the years.
