  • St. Mark's Episcopal Church preschooler Elliot Dupuy plays in a pumpkin patch Wednesday on the church grounds in Glen Ellyn. The annual pumpkin sale raises money to fight homelessness and the patch also serves as an extension of indoor classrooms. "When we come out here, sometimes we bring our journals and draw what we see in the pumpkin patch," preschool teacher Beth Figler said. "Then we go back inside to write and talk about our experiences."
