Second Annual Jazz Fest Concert #rockthechurch

We welcomed back our friends Langhorne Slim with an impressive lineup including the Deslondes, Aurora Nealand, Topsy Chapman & Solid Harmony, Joey Savoy, the Lostines during the first weekend of Jazz Fest.  

The ambiance was spectacular and we were able to raise money for the ministries of FPCNO through beverage sales.

A very special off-site wedding performed by Pastor Fred

We were honored to take part in the first-ever wedding to take place in the newly opened University Medical Center of New Orleans on Friday, April 22, 2016. Yolanda Welsh and Michael Cheeks had been looking forward to their wedding, planned for November 2016, since Michael proposed last August. Their plans changed when Yolanda was admitted to UMC last week and they learned that her stage 4 kidney disease was now at stage 5. Michael and Yolanda decided to move up their wedding and contacted the hospital’s attorney and staff for guidance on notarizing their marriage paperwork.

Socially Conscious and Agriculturally Responsible

Our supplier, Pumpkin Patch Fundraisers, exercises sustainable agricultural practices. All Pumpkin Patch products are non-GMO. Cover crops are used to prevent soil erosion & suppress weeds, reducing the need for the use of herbicides. These responsible agricultural practices mean that we provide a great product, which has less of an impact on the environment.  

Pumpkin Modeling Debut with Culture Shock

The pumpkins got a supporting role in a recent jewelry photo shoot in the patch.  Christine Alexis, the designer of Culture Shock  jewelry contacted us about doing a photo shoot in the patch and we were so flattered.  As it turns out we have a lot in common with this young local company.  The pumpkin patch business model is socially conscious and agriculturally sustainable.  Culture Shock is too!
