November 26th: Valley Ford Pie Auction, 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm at the Valley Ford Schoolhouse, 14355 School Street, Valley Ford, CA 94972.
The 2019 Valley Ford Schoolhouse Pie Auction is Tuesday, November 26th, 5:30 pm at 14355 School Rd, Valley Ford, CA 94972 to raise funds to repair our community building.
The Valley Ford Schoolhouse is a historic building and the only community building in town. Serving as a one-room schoolhouse until the mid-1960’s it has most recently been the venue for community gatherings, family celebrations, classes, and fundraisers. This building means a lot to Valley Ford. The Schoolhouse is in need of repairs and upgrades to ensure it can continue to hold space for laughter, ideas and reminiscing for another 100 years. Please help the Schoolhouse by coming out for the folksy, welcoming, and sometimes hilarious Pie Auction.
The Pie Auction is a favorite community tradition that is back after a 5-year break. It’s a live auction to purchase your Thanksgiving pies from local celebrities like my husband’s Nana who uses apples from a 150yr old apple tree, your old 3rd-grade teacher or favorite neighbor. There will be free Comet Corn Popcorn, simple delicious fare, and beverages for purchase, live music and lots of local color. Plus, this year the schoolhouse will feature music by Sonoma County’s own Burnside Band, art by local youth, local hot apple cider, homemade decorations, and lots of good surprises.
