Autumn is just around the corner, and St. John’s Herr Estate will host its Annual Fall Fest on Saturday, September 16. The event, which features a huge indoor yard sale and bake sale, will run from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at St. John’s Herr Estate, the Luthercare senior living community at 200 Luther Lane, Columbia.
The event features a wide variety of items – such as gently-used books, puzzles, household items, jewelry, and more – for a reasonable price. A variety of baked goods made by residents will be for sale, along with chicken corn soup, hot dogs, barbecue, and beverages. The soup is prepared by the chef at St. John’s Herr Estate and is available to purchase by the bowl or quart, for eat-in or take-out. There is plenty of free parking.
Fall Fest is sponsored by St. John’s Herr Estate’s Residents’ Council. Proceeds from the Council’s fundraisers are donated to local not-for-profit organizations. For more information, call 717.684.0678.
