Harvest Festival makes comeback at FUMC

Before the First United Methodist Church Harvest Festival is seen, it is smelt.
The aroma of fresh barbecue lingered in the entrance to the festival Saturday. Smiling volunteers greeted festival-goers at the door as they explained how to register for the silent auction.

People paced up and down the silent auction tables, stopping to “ooh” and “aah” the items up for bid. Kids zoomed by clutching potential purchases in their hands, scanning the swarms of people for their parents and their parent’s cash. Consisting of a “trash to treasure” garage sale, silent auction, live auction, and a kid’s garage sale, the First United Methodist Church’s gym was filled wall-to-wall with family, food and fun — just as the banner on the gym wall advertised.

Kristy Schmidt was in charge of the kid’s garage sale, where Disney movies, McDonald’s Happy Meal toys, and Harry Potter coloring books sell like hotcakes.
