Join the Guild for Lunch & Holiday Bake Sale/Auction

The Shenandoah Valley Music Festival Guild will hold its 25th Anniversary Holiday Bake Sale and Auction on Thursday, Nov. 16 at Shenvalee Resort in New Market. The gathering time for conversation and libations is 11:30 a.m. Lunch is served at 12:15 p.m. Cost is $20. Visitors are cordially invited to attend.

The luncheon will be in Shenvalee’s Main Dining Room and will feature a buffet of fried chicken, ham with raisin sauce, creamy scalloped potatoes, southern style green beans and cole slaw with house-made dressing. Dessert will feature fruit cobblers made with Valley-grown fruit. Rolls, butter, tea and coffee will complete the meal.

Guild members and friends are invited to showcase their baking skills by submitting items for auction. Many folks line the shelves of their pantries with holiday items purchased at the Guild sale. Items for purchase should be brought to Shenvalee by 11:00 a.m.

In addition to incredible baked goods provided by our members and friends, this November’s auction will include a small selection of artistic items and a special gourmet event. One member is submitting a stained glass piece in black and white, commemorating the music focus of the Guild. Another Guild couple is offering a gourmet luncheon for ten people. Folks may want to form groups of ten for spirited bidding on the gourmet luncheon. Artistic items being submitted should be of juried quality. Again this year the auctioneer will be Rich Armell of Basye.
