With God’s Grace held its first Fall Harvest Festival

With God’s Grace held its first Fall Harvest Festival on Saturday afternoon, October 28, 2017. This event, held at the WGG warehouse was free and open to the public. WGG Executive Director, Nicole Adkins and about 30 other volunteers hosted this event in a number of ways. Some volunteers helped serve food, others provided oversight, security, and raffle ticket sales, while some helped with crafts and activities. Just over 200 guests from the community enjoyed several crafts and activities and received lunch items, treats and a pumpkin, all free of charge. Most of the kids at this event were in costume. A costume contest was held near the end of the event with ribbons going to the scariest, cutest, and best overall costumes.
Some of the other activities available included, a ring toss, face painting, coloring, and jewelry crafts. Food items offered included hot dogs, popcorn, chips, and baked goods. Most of the cost and items in this event were from local donations. Among the local donors were Woodforest National Bank and The Cakery. With God’s Grace t-shirts were raffled off to Kroger Plus Card holders who signed up to link their cards to With God’s Grace. This raffle brought in 30 people to link their Kroger Plus Cards to WGG. The proceeds from the other raffle drawings covered the other costs of the event. The overall focus of this event was intended for outreach into the community. According to Nicole Adkins, this outreach will continue with candy and pumpkins being handed out to kids at the WGG warehouse on Dayton’s Halloween Night. Tuesday October 31, 2017, from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. According to Nicole Adkins, last night’s event was a success. She was pleased to offer this activity to local residents and hopes to hold more Fall Festivals in the future.
