Local chefs, farmers and growers are coming together Sunday, Oct. 22 in Summit for the inaugural “Summit Harvest Party: A Farm-to-Table Dinner Delight,” organizers announced.
The event begins at 4 p.m. and dinner will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Summit Grange Hall.
“With grateful thanks to local chefs, farmers and growers, the harvest dinner showcases the bounty, beauty and diversity of our local farms, assuring a delicious delight of seasonal masterpieces to be shared and welcomes all,” publicity coordinator Barbara Sobo Gast said through a news release.
Sobo Gast said the seasonally-inspired buffet-style dinner menu to be prepared by local chefs will include a meat entrée, vegetarian/vegan entrée, roasted vegetable sides, salads, artisan breads and fall fruit desserts. All menu items will feature what’s fresh at the farm that week. Fresh-pressed apple cider is also on the menu. Gluten-free options will be available.
The Summer Harvest Party is a benefit for the Summit Grange. The event is $25 per person and kids eat free. Organizers are currently taking reservations for planning purposes and because seating space is limited.
Sobo Gast encourages anyone who would like to attend to make a reservation by Oct. 15 by contacting Jo Alexander at 541-456-4440 or email@example.com. For those who would like to pay by mail, make checks payable to Summit Grange No. 432 and send to Jo Alexander, 36904 Happy Hollow Road, Blodgett, OR 97326. The name on the reservation, number of people in the party with each person’s name and the preferred method of contact for confirmation and updates should be included.
The event begins at 4 p.m. with “Apple Cider Pressing Happy Hour,” Michael & Merediths playing old-timey tunes on the banjo and guitar, and a raffle described as “quirky and fun.”
