The Daviess County 4-H grounds may be quiet now, but on Oct. 27 the grounds will come to life again as the inaugural 4-H to Table Dinner takes over.
“We are really excited about hosting 4-H to Table,” said Tara Brower, one of the organizers of the event that will serve as a fundraiser for the Daviess County 4-H Building Fund. “We’ll be serving barbecue pork, green beans, baked potatoes and salad along with homemade bread and desserts.”
Brower said the community has been supportive of the dinner that will begin at 5 p.m. in the new multi-species mega barn constructed earlier this year.
“We have 4-H’ers Hayden Fuhs and Kaelyn Klopfenstein providing entertainment. Our 4-H’ers will be serving the meals. We have members of the Extension Homemakers who will be making desserts,” said Brower, who said others in the community have stepped up to help provide other items for the evening as well, including items for the silent and live auction. “We have some 4-H’ers who are making things to be auctioned off. Each 4-H will also be putting together a gift basket to auction off and we have some other community members making items as well.”
Auction items are still being accepted too and if the auction isn’t of interest, maybe a hayride will be.
“The Boyds will be offering hayrides that evening too,” said Brower adding that the $15 tickets, which can be purchased at Brower’s Edward Jones office or at the Daviess County Extension Office, include all of the evening’s activities.
And for those unable to stay, carry out meals will also be available.
“Tickets can be purchased through Oct. 18,” said Brower, who said those interested in donating to the event can email firstname.lastname@example.org. “It’s going to be a really fun evening.”
