Students tour pumpkin patch, meet Halloween characters – The Vacaville Reporter

By Nick Sestanovich

Between walking to Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church and walking along the back hill to meet wooden cutouts of famous Halloween characters, students at Fairmont and Padan elementary schools definitely got their steps in Thursday.

It was all part of the church’s Pumpkins on the Hill event, where pumpkins and other goodies are sold at cheap prices, with proceeds distributed to Opportunity House and the Feed the Hungry program at Church of the Epiphany.

As part of this program, Fairmont and Padan students at all grade levels are invited to walk over to the pumpkin patch, play games, be led on a tour where they receive free pencils and other items along the way, listen to songs sung by Mr. Pumpkin — an alias of music minister Chris Holmes, and maybe buy a pumpkin, small toy or snack while there.
