September 2, 1994 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana IIII I I I 13 I I I I III Garden Patch volunteer,s serve over 700 families Garden Patch volunteers cel- ebrated another successful sea- son, at a picnic in Garvin Park, Aug. 26. The Garden Patch Program is coordinated through Catholic Charities, to )rovide home grown vegetables for a minimal cost to low-in- come families and the elderly. Over 700 families were served during the six weeks of Garden Patch operation this summer, according to Wayne Bochert, coordinator of the community outreach program this year. Eleven Catholic parishes in the diocese were involved, along with members of other faiths." Gardeners and farmers from Gibson, Posey, Vander- burgh and Warrick counties brought their surplus vegeta- bles and other items to two lo- cations in Evansville, where the fresh food was available for distribution on Mondays and Wednesdays., About 15 volunteers were in- volved in unloading, packaging and distributing the vegeta- bles, at St. Mary Catholic Church and Asbury United Methodist Church. At the picnic, Bochert praised the volunteers for their hard work. He said the project was successful because of the cooperation the volunteers, those who provided the vegeta- bles, and the two churches which provided convenient lo- cations for distribution. Also attending the mid-day picnic were Thomas Coe, for- mer project coordinator, and James Collins, the new direc- tor of Catholic Charities. Catholic Charities has spon- sored and coordinated the Gar- den Patch Project for over 20 years. Garden Patch volunteers gathering near a picnic shelter at Garvin Park are, kneeling, Bobby DePriest, front row, Syl Brenner, Judy Walden, Theresa Wallace, Lucille Peay, Martha Franklin, back row, Ed Schmidt, Mural Middleton, Tim Wallace, "Butch" Koen. ing and Wayne Bochert.
