Southern Harvest Festival, Oct 29th – A Good time!

Title:Southern Harvest Festival, Oct 29th – A Good time!

Hula Girl, Genevieve 10-29-2011

The 29th  was a cold, dreary, rain day in Port Royal but it was livened by the Southern Harvest Festival in Cookie and Johnny’s pavilion. 30 people were in attendance, many in costumes for the season. A silent auction was featured which included numerous jewelry items, art by Marian, a cross made by Helmut and wooden ducks donated by Dave. Funds for tickets and the silent auction go to the ECW, particularly for their outreach. They made over $2,000!

This year a live jazz band from Richmond and King George was put together by Mary Lawerence Hicks on trumpet. The food was plentiful and included Stanley’s chicken, spoon bread, macaroni, beans and for dessert  both pumpkin and apple pies. 

The judging was tough for the costumer contest. 3rd place went to  the skeleton, 2nd the Nerd and 1st the Hula Girl. 

38 slides were put together in a gallery . Others who have pictures to add can submit them online.
