Harvest Hoedown coming soon

Friday, October 5, 2012

The Clay County Community Foundation will sponsor its fifth Harvest Hoedown from 4:30-9 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Clay County 4-H Fairgrounds.

All proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Clay County Community Foundation.

"We use the money in part for our operating expenses and also for our grant making activities," Foundation President Paul Sinders said.

The Harvest Hoedown will feature a Texas-style dinner prepared by Pappy's Barbecue. The dinner will be served from 4:30-7 p.m.

A chuck wagon, courtesy of Randy Dyer, will also be on display. The meal will be served out of the chuck wagon.

Sinders added a silent auction will take place from 4:30-8 p.m.

Several items will be up for bid, including gift certificates to local restaurants, a Cracker Barrel rocking chair and gift certificates to other local businesses.

Winners of the silent auction will be announced at 8:30 p.m.

Toni's Tumbling and Dance Studio will provide entertainment from 7:30-8:15 p.m., in the main exhibition hall at the fairgrounds.

Children's games will be provided by the YMCA of Clay County from 6-7 p.m., in the first outside pavilion at the fairgrounds. Cornhole games will also be available from 6-8 p.m.

The announcement of the 2012 grant recipients will be made from 7-7:30 p.m.

General admission to the event is $15, which includes cost of the meal. Children 12-under will be admitted for $5.

"You may purchase tickets at the door, but we would prefer you purchase your tickets in advance so Pappy's can prepare for the number of needed meals," Sinders said.

Tickets may be purchased at all Clay County Riddell National Bank locations and the location on State Road 46 in Vigo County.

Tickets may also be purchased from any member of the Clay County Community Foundation Board of Directors, which includes Sinders, Kandace Brown, Randy Collins, Joyce Emmert, Sam Glover, Shelly Hyatt, Mike Lawson, Vanita Moore, Jim Romas, Renee Stewart, Lucy Strauch and Connie Turner.

"Each year, attendance has grown," Sinders said. "We are certainly hoping that is true for this year as well."

Harvest Hoedown sponsors include Riddell National Bank, Miller and Stewart Certified Public Accountants and the Wabash Valley Community Foundation.
