Event Date: 
Sat, 10/25/2014 - 9:00am

The Aledo school choir program is hosting a Pumpkin Patch again this year to raise money for its upcoming activities and trips for Aledo Middle School and Aledo High School choirs.
The pumpkin patch is Oct. 25 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at Aledo First Financial Bank on FM 1187.
This has been a huge success in the past and has helped raise money to cover the transportation costs involved in spring trips. Both campuses will have a spring trip again this year, and this fundraiser can be a huge help in reducing costs for each family. The money raised will go toward the expenses of only the students who participate by working or donating needed items.
