FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MILITARY FAMILIES INVITED TO A FREE DAY OF FALL FUN
Annual Military Family Day Planned at Bloom Where You’re Planted Farm & Pumpkin Patch
Bloom Where You're Planted Farm & Pumpkin Patch is hosting its sixth-annual Military Family Day on September 22nd . Service men and women and their immediate family members will receive free admission to the farm all day when presenting their military ID.
Farm owners Terry and Teresa Lorensen recognize the sacrifices these men and women, their spouses and children make as part of a military family, and want to provide them a fun break and a chance to celebrate the season. "When we started this event six years ago, a friend of ours was serving in the military and we saw how that affected his family. We wanted a chance to say ‘thank you’ to all those in the same situation. It’s been fun and eye-opening to meet so many wonderful people from all over the country who are serving in the military.”
The Pumpkin Festival at Bloom Where You're Planted Farm begins September 15th and continues through October 28th. Hours are 1:00-6:00 p.m. Fridays and 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Several more special event weekends are planned, including Doggy Day October 6th to benefit the Plattsmouth Animal Shelter, and Ag Day October 13th in cooperation with Conestoga FFA. For a complete listing of activities at the farm, visit www.BloomPumpkinPatch.com .
Bloom Where You‘re Planted Farm is located at 911-108th St., rural Avoca, NE, 27 miles east of Lincoln or 30 miles south of Omaha. Take US Hwy. 34 to 108th Street, then travel ½ mile north. Visit www.BloomPumpkinPatch.com for a map, directions, and calendar of special events, or call 402-267-4104.
The farm is owned and operated by Terry and Teresa Lorensen, and has been in Teresa’s family since 1944. The farm and pumpkin patch opened to the public in 2005 and is celebrating its eighth pumpkin patch season.
