Harvest Dinner – Event Date Change – Due to circumstances beyond our control the date of our Harvest Dinner has been changed to October 7.
Chef Greg Mummert has been named Executive Chef for York College of Pennsylvania and is required to be on campus for September 30th during Open House and the Fall Festival. We look forward to Chef Mummert providing us with his exceptional culinary skills on October 7th. We apologize for any inconvenience. Anyone who has already purchased tickets and is unable to attend on October 7th will be issued a full refund. Please contact the office to arrange for the refund.
Congratulations to Chef Mummert on his new appointment!
This year’s Harvest Dinner on October 7th at 5:30 PM is fast approaching! Tickets are available for sale ($100/person) by calling the church office. This event has become one of the main ways that our food pantry brings in donations which have become much more important over the last few years as our pantry serves record numbers. During this time, the pantry’s funding from the state and other mechanisms has decreased. Attendees can expect to enjoy passed appetizers and drinks while browsing the paintings for sale and listening to live music. We will then move downstairs to browse and bid on the silent auction items and have dinner. The menu this year will include: harvest salad, roasted fruit-stuffed pork loin, butternut squash and greens, smashed red skinned potatoes and, for dessert, pumpkin gelato. Chef Greg Mummert will prepare the meal. Each course will be paired with a selection of wine and beer. After dinner, winners of the silent auction items will be announced followed by a live auction of Pastor Reep’s professionally-matted and framed watercolor paintings. New this year will be an opportunity for children to attend. They will be served a meal and enjoy activities and fellowship upstairs with a fantastic group of volunteers. Please let the office know if you will have children attending when you call to reserve your ticket.
In addition to attending, there are other opportunities to help with this important event:
1. Table host (new this year): Table hosts will take responsibility for filling a table with family, friends,
colleagues or neighbors. The night of the event, you’ll welcome the guests and pour the drinks for each
2. Set up crew: We will need a few people to help set the tables, make centerpieces and otherwise get
ready for the event on Saturday, September 30.
3. Clean up crew: We will need to conclude the night with the building ready for church the next morning. Volunteers will help clear the tables, put dishes away, put away trash.
Please let the church office, Jessica or Tristan Ericson or any of the committee members know if you would like to volunteer.
Please plan to attend and bring a friend!
