2018 Harvest of Sharing

Now that the fall season is upon us, the combines are in the fields, and the holiday season is quickly approaching, it’s time to start counting our blessings!  Fairview Haven is doing just that with their Harvest of Sharing event.  Our businesses can benefit from this event by showcasing what we offer by making a contribution to be auctioned during the silent auction.  We also benefit from all the people who come to our community… people who shop and dine!

The public is welcome to come to Fairview Haven/East Haven on October 31st through November 2nd  to participate in the biggest silent auction in the area!  On Wednesday, October 31st, at 10 am, this silent auction will be opened to start the bidding process!  Come to East Haven on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday to view over 700 listed items.  Pick up a bidder’s number at Rick Plattner’s office, the Social Services office, or at East Haven.  If you’re unable to stop in, you can bid using the email address fairviewhaven1@gmail.com or by calling (815) 692-2572.  However, these services are only open until 2pm on Friday, November 2nd; the on-site auction closes on Friday, November 2nd at 7:30 pm.  Make sure you get all of your shopping in by then!

Everyone is looking forward to Thanksgiving a month from now, but before then, you can enjoy the 2018 Harvest of Sharing Benefit Supper!  Savor juicy grilled pork loin and chicken quarters, coated in a special marinade.  Baked potatoes, fruit salad, green beans, dinner rolls, and delectable homemade pies are also on the menu.  Come to the Fairview Haven dining room on Friday, November 2nd from 4 to 7 pm to treat your taste buds.  If you can’t stay for long, head to the East Haven north garages just next door for carry-out meals.  There is also a local delivery service available.

“This is an amazing event that everyone should attend,” says Bobbi McKeon, owner of Heart’s Desire and coordinator of Specialty Shops of Fairbury.  “Not only does it benefit Fairview Haven and its residents, everyone else can reap the benefits, too!”

Donations for the meal are accepted at the door.  Proceeds from the event will be used towards the Good Samaritan Fund of Fairview Haven.  Find out more about Harvest of Sharing by visiting Fairview Haven’s website at www.fairviewhaven.org/harvest-of-sharing.html.
