Sewickley United Methodist to usher in autumn with pork dinner Oct. 6
The popular pumpkin patch at Sewickley United Methodist Church isn’t the only sign that fall is here.
This year the church, located at 337 Broad St., is also hosting a dinner Oct. 6 to kick off autumn.
A traditional homemade roast pork, sausage and sauerkraut dinner with potatoes, haluski, desserts, Bavarian pretzels and beverages will be held from 5 to 7 p.m.
Adults are $12, children 5 through 12 are $6 and children under 5 are fee.
The meal compliments the pumpkin patch on the church lawn, which is open from 9 a.m. until sunset nearly every day in October, Shuluga said.
Staffed by church volunteers, the pumpkin patch is in its 16th year. People can stop by to purchase pumpkins and gourds and take pictures. The church also has a haunted house during the weekends of Oct. 20 and 27, Shuluga said.
The pumpkins are shipped from New Mexico to Sewickley for the event, which serves as a fundraiser for the Navajo Native American tribe, which provides the pumpkins.
“The majority of the proceeds go back to the Navajo,” Shuluga said.
