Franklin City Sights: Pumpkin Patch

I wouldn’t normally blog about a ten-minute stop by a pumpkin patch on the side of the road… but this one happens to come with a background story.  We didn’t know anything about the pumpkin patch at all, other than that we noticed it pop up in the last week or so and drove by it almost every day. So when we were running errands over the weekend, we stopped by to pick out a pumpkin.
We found out that it is staffed with volunteers for the Cooper Trooper Foundation, and all proceeds go to research for pediatric cancer and “Cooper Trooper Caring and Courage Kits” for sibling of kids with cancer.  Cooper, the namesake, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer as an infant but is cancer-free today – and in fact, he and his older brothers were running around the pumpkin patch that day.

So… I’m no affiliated or anything, but it was a cool story and definitely made us feel even better about picking up a couple pumpkins to take home.  It looked like there were some other fun things for kids too – a bouncy house and wagons if you pick out a pile.  If you’re interested in the foundation, here’s their website: www.coopertrooper.org
If you live in the area, you should check it out!  And now a small photo dump… of course!
