2016 Late Fall Newsletter & Bake Sale

Dear Friends,

The Wirtanen Farm Day Fall Festival event took place on Saturday, September 10, 2016 from 10 am to 4 pm. We were fortunate to see a break from all the rain we received this summer. The Strawberry Fields draft horses pulled the wagon around a muddy field. They truly are work horses! There were musicians performing all day. Art Lehtonen wouldn’t miss it and provided us with Finnish music. Jon Niemi, Aaron Paul and Brad Hoiland also entertained us. Local authors – Margo Hansen & Dennis Esler – spent the day with us too.

Thank you to crafters, artisans, and visitors for donations to support the farm.  Also kiitos to all the volunteers, without you we would not be able to achieve this.

The Annual Bake Sale is fast approaching and will be held on Friday November 4th & Saturday November 5th from 8 to 5. Donated baked goods can be dropped off Thursday, November 3rd from 5 to 7 at the Colvin Town Hall. We will have lunch available for purchase between 11 and 4 (or until we run out). Cookbooks and postcards will also be for sale. They make great gifts!

Kiitos!

Darlene Saumer,

President
