Lord’s Acre square dance, pot luck, auction and fundraiser is Saturday

On Saturday, May 30th, the 7th annual Lord’s Acre Square Dance, Family Pot Luck, Auction and Fundraiser will take place in Fairview.
The Lord’s Acre Garden (named for the gardens started by churches after the Great Depression to feed the hungry), is headed up by master gardeners and old alumni of Mother Earth News. They have created an amazing place, not only for the 10 tons of food they produced last year and gave to feed those in need, but as an educational facility to teach, train and generate awareness of the food we eat.

According one attendee of the annual Square Dance Potluck Fundraiser, “It is by far the biggest potluck supper I have ever seen and the food is always fantastic!”

 Coming to the Dance
From their press release:

Gather your family and friends for a fun evening of food, square dancing, and a silent auction, all to raise funds for The Lord’s Acre, a local garden that grows literally tons of fresh produce each year and gives it all away to feed the hungry.

The 7th annual Square Dance will take place Saturday, May 30 from 5:30 – 10:30 pm at the garden, off Route 74A East on Joe Jenkins Road (across from Angelo’s Restaurant – look for signs). The family-friendly event includes a big potluck supper, square dancing to a live band (experience not required!), hay rides, and a silent auction of prodigious proportions. Items at the auction include beautiful, handmade artwork and jewelry, a gourmet dinner for 12 at Sherrill’s Inn, massage and yoga packages, guided horseback rides, fly fishing, and plenty more items for gardeners, animal lovers, and foodies! Auction items can be previewed at: www.thelordsacre.org. The rain date for the event is June 6.

Suggested donations are $10 per individual and $25 per family. Refreshments will be provided and, for the first time, beer and cider will be available for purchase. Please bring a dish to share as we gather to help feed the hungry in our community.
