Harvest, Harmony, Home

The Quinebaug Valley Singers'
First Annual Harvest Supper and Auction

On Saturday, September 17th, 2016, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Charlton Baptist Church (50 Hammond Hill Road, Charlton, MA), the Quinebaug Valley Singers will host their first ever Harvest Supper and Auction, as a fund-raiser for the chorus.  Everyone is invited to come and enjoy free food, fine entertainment, and the chance to bid for high-quality items.  Our experienced auctioneer is QVS's own Roland Parent; the chorus itself will sing, and alto Sarah Jo Burke, a professional singer/songwriter/guitarist/flautist/percussionist, will also provide music, along with QVS's superbly talented accompanist Brooks Milgate.  

A complete list of auction treasures will be published here on our website a couple of weeks before the event, but some possible or likely items include a never-used Husqvarna 141 chain saw, a hand-made quilt, a large China Pearl "Noel" Christmas dinnerware set, a singing evening at your home led by QVS Music Director Nym Cooke, donated passes to popular destinations such as a ski resort and Old Sturbridge Village, framed works of art, a Daytona woman's leather racing jacket, a chance to have your favorite song performed at a QVS concert, perhaps a Fall getaway weekend for two at a QVS member's vacation home...  The list will grow steadily from now to September.

So put the date on your calendars NOW and plan to join us for a memorable evening of Harvest delectables, musical and social Harmony, and the chance to enrich your Home and your leisure time with some choice goods and services, while at the same time you're helping support south-central Massachusetts and northeast Connecticut's premiere community chorus!  For more information on "Harvest, Harmony, Home," you may contact Auction co-chairs Linda Lambrecht (email: or Carol Curtin (email:; phone: 508-341-6828); to donate high-quality items and services to the auction, you're encouraged to contact Jeanne Adler (email:; phone: 508-248-6869).
