From Deer Creek Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends:
Deer Creek Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) of Darlington will host its 19th Annual Blueberry Festival at 1212 Main Street, on Saturday, July 16, 2016 from 10AM to 2PM. Homemade blueberry pies and baked goods, and blueberry desserts with ice cream, fresh berries, an 11AM Live Auction, Heartwood Nursery Native Plants, White Elephant table, Used Books, and hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks. All proceeds will go to donations to people in need locally and globally.
Hamburgers, and hot dogs will be sold with chips and cold drinks. For those who want to eat dessert first, the Festival offers blueberry pie or cake with ice cream, or ice cream with blueberry sauce (or all three) beginning at 10AM.
The 11AM Live Auction will feature furniture, framed and unframed art, vintage china, jewelry and other household items deemed more valuable than the ever-popular White Elephant Table, described as “even better than last year,” according to co-chairs Margaret Scarborough and Jim Pickard, “with books, household items, toys, games and sports equipment.”
Quaker Sue Hunter, owner of Heartwood Nursery and Garden Shop in Felton, PA, will offer native plants, trees, shrubs and ground cover of the Eastern Piedmont and other transitional regions – all proceeds to the Festival.
The Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers, is a Christian religion founded in England in the early 1600s whose members seek to “let their lives speak” upholding simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship.
