CHESTERMERE – While the snow was falling constantly during our mini blizzard last Saturday October 20th, the 6th Annual Lions Club Pumpkin Patch event at the Mountain View Funeral Home went ahead as planned. Snow was falling constantly but that did not frighten off any of the ghosts and goblins from coming out to pick a pumpkin from the farmers’ field behind the bright orange M&M tent. The hotdogs were on the fiery grill, hot chocolate and coffee was abundant and consumed by all to warm up from the winter chill. There seemed to be a bit of a rush during the first hour and then the activity slowed down somewhat. Many of the families were dressed for the occasion; meaning they had their winter wear on rather than a Halloween costume. The kids’ just love heading out into the pumpkin patch field to pick out a pumpkin where they can take it home or carve it right there at the Lions Club tent. It seems this year many of the pumpkins were taken home to sculpt out a face on the pulpy orange ball. The Pumpkin Patch is usually a great fundraiser for the Chestermere Lions Club and the proceeds will go to local organizations that the Lions Club donate to in Chestermere.
