Last year, over 100 talented children answered the call to create the first ever Pineland Pumpkin Patch, and this year, Pineland needs their help again! 

Children ages 12 and under are invited to get creative and decorate Pineland’s paper pumpkins using whatever tools (crayons, markers, glitter, etc.) their imaginations see fit! The Pumpkins will be displayed in the front windows of the Metter business office to create a patch for all to enjoy. 

On Oct. 28, entries will be divided into three age groups, and a name will be drawn from each to receive a $25 gift certificate to McDonald’s.

To participate, pick up an entry form at the Metter or Swainsboro office, and return the completed form by close of business on Oct. 26. Children do not have to be in a household with Pineland services to enter.  

For any questions about the Pumpkin Patch, or to receive an entry form via email, contact Pineland at 800.247.1266 or
