LETTER: Thanks to all for help with fundraiser

On Sept. 10 , Dickinson Family Farm hosted the Summerland Feast of Farms — a celebration of Summerland’s long history of agriculture.

Dear Editor:

On Sept. 10 , Dickinson Family Farm hosted the Summerland Feast of Farms — a fitting venue, as this event celebrates Summerland’s long history of agriculture.

The organizers of the inaugural Feast of Farms wish to thank all of the sponsors, volunteers, and guests who made this event a success.

Several local businesses, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Summerland and District Credit Union made cash or in-kind donations. Many, many volunteer hours ensured everything was just right; even the weather cooperated.

Feast of Farms opened with a reception that was followed by a sit-down, long table dinner selected and prepared by Chef Paul Cecconi and his team.

The award-winning Chef Paul is well-known for his commitment to working with local sustainable farmers.

Dinner courses were paired with donated Summerland organic wines.

Timbre Wolves provided musical entertainment for the evening, performing from a mobile stage compliments of the Dickinsons.

Shuttle service to and from the event was provided by Ogopogo Valley Tours, who donated all proceeds.

This fundraiser to expand the Community Garden at the Alliance Church would not have been successful without all the efforts and support by so many in our community.

We look forward to seeing more garden space made available to Summerland residents for the next growing season.

The second annual Summerland Feast of Farms is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017.  If you wish to be part of this fundraiser — as an organizer, sponsor, volunteer or guest — please search Feast of Farms on Facebook and let us know.
