The annual pumpkin patches benefiting Habitat for Humanity are just about here. The pumpkin patch at Garrison & Alameda opens this Saturday, Oct. 5th, and operates from 10 a.m. to dusk every day until Halloween. The patch at 77th Ave & Wadsworth operates from Thursday, Oct. 10th, through Halloween from 10 a.m. to dusk. Buy your pumpkins at either site and 40% of the purchase price goes toward building a Habitat home — and is tax deductible, for which you’ll get a receipt.
If you know Carol Milan, you may know that she is a registered nurse and that her husband, Kevin, is an Assistant Fire Chief with South Metro Fire Rescue, overseeing all firefighter training. In November they are embarking on an 11-day trip to Kenya with Africa Fire Mission, where Carol will work on the medical team, while Kevin handles training of the firefighters.
Firefighter deaths in Africa are excessively high, largely due to lack of training. We are pleased to support Carol and Kevin in this humanitarian mission, and encourage your support too.
