Lord’s Acre Country Store, Auction 

draws big crowd at UMC on Oct. 23 

The 36th annual Lord’s Acre Harvest Festival attracted a big crowd Saturday, Oct. 23 at the Family Life Center of The United Methodist Church of Frankston.

The Festival is the church’s main fund-raising activity. Because of members’ and other community supporters’ participation, the Festival has helped the church realize many goals, church officials say. They described the event as a day of fun, food and fellowship for all who attend.

The day began at 9 a.m. when the Country Store opened, stocked with homemade or newly purchased goods church members have donated. Some examples of items found were jams, jellies, breads, pies, cakes, relish, preserves, decorative home accents, toys for children, Christmas items and casserole covers.

At 11 a.m., the popular auction began. Items up for bidding were also homemade or newly purchased and donated by church members. The items were valued in excess of $35 and bidders were active in purchasing the items.

A wide variety of items were available for bidding at the auction.

The Food Committee served coffee, canned drinks, desserts and a few breakfast items. The Covenant Cookers sold barbecued brisket sandwiches and chips. Other briskets will be sold through the auction.
