Wilton Pumpkin Patch helps support town | FOX61 Student News

Each year, the proceeds from the pumpkin patch grow larger with the support of the community.

WILTON, Conn. — Story by Adam Raniolo 

 The Wilton Kiwanis club is a group of volunteers that runs various community events that help support local businesses and charities. 

This fall, the Kiwanis club hosted a pumpkin patch at the Wilton Historical Society.

In the past, the Kiwanis club has supported many local businesses and charities including the Norwalk River Valley Trail and the Wilton YMCA. Each year, the proceeds from the pumpkin patch grow larger with the support of the community. 

Both the Kiwanis club and the historical society benefit from this event. The historical society greatly benefits from hosting the pumpkin patch because it attracts more people to see and learn about Wilton’s past. 

Overall, this dual event is a fun community celebration of fall and brings people together to support local businesses and charities. More information on the Kiwanis club can be found at https://wiltonkiwanis.org/
