Dear Fabulous Food Growers and Producers of East Jefferson County,
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Chimacum Grange! We're celebrating with a Pancake Feed on September 16th, Farm Tour Weekend, and we would love your support of a food donation.
The Pancake Breakfast will feature a delicious menu of locally grown and produced foods, live music by Wild Phil and the Buffalo Gals, and a raffle for local food boxes. We hope to sell between 200-300 advance tickets.
We are asking our local food growers and producers to support us by contributing food that we will be raffling off. All the contributions will be arranged artistically on a table during the breakfast in a display reminiscent of the old State Fair Grange Displays. We are hoping you see this as an opportunity to advertise your goods.
If you have a CSA program, would you be willing to donate one food box along with information about your CSA program?
If you make cider, would you be willing to contribute one bottle to our “Assorted Cider” box?
If you make wine, would you be willing to contribute one bottle to our “Assorted Wine” box?
If you make jams, honey, or other preserves, would you be willing to contribute one or two jars to our “Assorted Preserves” box?
If you grow seeds, would you be willing to contribute a couple packets of seeds for our “Assorted Seeds” box?
We are well aware of all the hard work that goes into producing the wonderful food you grow and make. We don’t take asking for a donation from you lightly, but it seems essential that any celebration of the Grange has local food at its heart.
If you can please email or call Tia (Grange Coordinator) one way or the other, it will help us immensely as we plan this event. We will assist with any pickups of donated food.
Tickets for this event go on sale to the public on August 8th. Tell us if you would like us to set aside any tickets for you before then ($12 adults, $7 kids 10 and under). We expect this to sell out.
Thanks for your consideration!
