Swan Meadow School Harvest Sale - September 16, 2016

Last Updated on Sep 6, 2016 at 2:19pm

Swan Meadow School PTO’s 67th annual fundraiser, the Harvest Sale, will be Friday, September 16, at Pleasant Valley Community Center, south of Oakland, MD. This traditional celebration of the local harvest will begin when concession stands open at 5:00 p.m., the students sing at 6:25 p.m., and the auctioneer starts at 6:30 p.m. The PTO’s auction of farm produce, handmade items, and baked goods features items provided by families and students of Swan Meadow School, many of whom are Amish or Mennonite.
Glazed doughnuts made the morning of the sale, as well as caramels, taffy, cookies, fudge, and cinnamon rolls, will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. Half and whole dozens of doughnuts and cinnamon rolls and gallons of apple cider will be sold under the white tent located by the entrance of the Pleasant Valley Community Center. This way, people who come to the Harvest Sale for homemade goodies have the option of purchasing them outside of the community center, then taking them to their vehicles before going inside for dinner and the auction. When the doughnuts are sold out under the tent, gallons of apple cider will be sold inside the community center.
Inside the center, participants can buy taco salad, fruit salad, chili dogs, sloppy joes, and hot dogs to eat, and coffee, chocolate milk, lemonade, and apple cider to drink. One of the many highlights of the auction will be the bidding on twelve dinners to be served in a local home. Another is the hand-knotted comforter that kindergarteners, first and second graders are busy sewing for the auction. Students in grades 3-8 are creating handmade items for the auction as well. All sales will be made with cash or check; we cannot accept payment by credit card at this time.
To reach the Pleasant Valley Community Center at 975 Joni Miller Road, travel on Route 219, and turn onto Paul Friend Road. Then turn right onto Joni Miller Road. Finally, continue to the Pleasant Valley Community Center on the right.
