Pumpkin Patch Fundraisers began 31 >iears ago. and their pumpkins aie grcMTi on a fiarm in the Nav-ajo Reservation mit -side of Farmington. in .New Mexico's northwest corner. They are po^vn in a joint agreement %vith the Navaio .Agricultural Products Industrv.  And for First United Methodist profit finm the sale of pumpkins goes toward its youth scholarship fund.  The scholarship fiind creates a pool of money used for youth field trips, summer camps and missionary work. It is set up so that all young churchgoers can attend these trips.  "So that you don't have to be  wefl-oflF to partic^te in church functions outside of Sunday school.' said Cara Garcia, wiio sets up the pumpkin patch sale for the churcii.  Pan of funds raises with this and other ventures will help fund a missionarv trip to Ciu-dad .Acuna. .Mexico in 2011.  Jerri Hartman. the youth direaor at First Methodist, said the youth group of about 25 students whose ages range from 12 to 18. will stay in Del Rio that summer and work on various church improvement projects across the boarder during the day.  The fundraisers will pa> for building supplies, paintbrushes. paints." she said.  They vvill replace church windows, a rrKjf on a chapel and other projects being outlined b\ First Methrxlist s current missionary worker in the area.  But that is almost twf) years away, so Hartman has more immediate goals for the youth group's fiindraising efforts.  "Espedalh' %¥ith thh economy. I just want the kids to 90 to camp ... it's important to me that the kids not worry about money." she said.  The youth group has plenty to do before the Mexico mission.  On the third Saturday of every month they head to the San .Antonio Methodist Mission Home to work with disadvantaged and disabled yxHith. Th^' also learn sign language.  "Ulien we go to the home the money from these fundraisers pays for a sack iunch for the yt>uth group and the children at the home," she said.  With all of the activity happening for the youth group, it is hard to tell wtiere a good deal of their funding comes from. That Is what makes the pumpkin sale, right out in front of First United Methodist so valuable.  "It really puts a face on the church." Giircia said.

Local disaster volunteer chapter cites need for more help  By Chris Cobb  The Herald-Zeitung  Whether it might be a hurricane battering the gulf or heavy rains flooding New Brauiifels. the IfKal V'biuniary Organb^tion Active in Disaster is getting prepared.  VOAD is on hand to provide supplemental aid to state and local government emergency efforts during a crisis.  As it did in 2008 when New Braunfels hosted hundreds of Hurricane Ike evacuees from coastal Texas, VOAD uses local residents to help provide food, blankets and other vital necessities to those in need.  But VOAI) officials said the organization needs more involvement from the community to help it prepare should disaster strike again.  "We care about this community, and we're here to serv e and help this community. said Chris IX>uglas during a quarteriy meeting lues-day in the i ;iany on Vista Office Park. We need a long list of people to help make this X'OAD as successful as it can be.  Douglas challenged local churches, clubs and other organizations to become more involved in the group's disaster response efforts.  V(MD was first tested during Hurricane Ike. when shel  ters in .New Braunfels were the temporary home to almost 700 "special needs" evacuees from coastal counties — people who had no means to escape the storm on their own.  The organization worked to coordinate local resources and get hot meals, blankets and other items that were not provided by government emergency response agencies to evacuees.  "I tiiink the VOAD worked very well meet the un-met needs in the shelters," said Comal County Emergency Management Coordinator Carol ^gen during Tuesday's meeting. "Especially since it was the first time we had ever  dealt with anything like that"  Edgett and VOAD members cited numerous things that could have been done bener, but said added community participation and more planning would help in the next crisis.  "When there's a disaster like a hurricane, there's a lot of awareness and a k)t of people willing to volunteer." said VOAD President David Welsch. "But we need to organize ahead of time so we know all the resources we have and can get them eflB-ciently to the people who need them."  To volunteer or leam more about VOAD. visit  www.ccvoad.org .
