Pumpkin Patch Opens
According to the delivery person “Berry,” the pumpkins are from the Navajo Indian reservation in New Mexico. Berry said it took him four days including time to sleep to arrive in Lehigh.
The Navajo Indians sent the church a video of their pumpkins being loaded and then an email when they were leaving for Lehigh, Ada Thompson the, church’s moderator said.
