If you live in the Upper Valley area and don’t already have plans for this coming Saturday afternoon (Nov. 7), please stop over at the Thetford Center Community Center building and check out the Open Fields School Fall auction.
We’ve got a lot of groovy services and items for sale, including an airplane ride, horseback riding lessons, fabulous baked items, stuff for kids, rare books, handmade candies, custom jewelry, cute painted pottery, and about 40 other items I can’t recall right now. All donated by local families and businesses.
Among other things, our family is contributing
- an artisanal cheese plate for 8 — 5-6 local cheeses (including at least one cheese made right in our kitchen) plus a loaf of bread, a bottle of something to drink, and several little treats to accompany the cheese
- a “bread-of-the-month-club” — six homemade loaves, to be distributed once a month to the winning bidder, beginning in January 2010. Thanks to the Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge, the winning bidder for this one is going to get some amazing breads.
We’ll also be selling lunch and snacks (all homemade by volunteers).
C’mon! It won’t be the same without you. And you’ll be supporting a really special school.
