Hollabaugh Bros. Fruit Market and Orchard is holding its first ever Community Day on Saturday, July 5. As a family-fun event, Community Day is the start to an annual trend Hollabaugh Bros., Inc. hopes to continue with in the years to come.
The initiative behind Community Day is simple—to offer up a fun and festive family-oriented event while at the same time, educating people about and supporting four great causes in the community. The four causes Hollabaugh Bros., Inc. is supporting through this event are the Adams County SPCA, Upper Adams Youth, Jewelry Designs by Angels and John’s Meals.
Adams County SPCA is working to raise money for building renovations that will help them better serve the community and animals for whom they care. Upper Adams Youth comprises of youth groups from three local churches trying to raise funds through their food stand in order to attend the ELCA Youth Gathering to be held in Detroit of next year. Jewelry Designs by Angels will be selling bracelets and other jewelry items in support of families who experience stillborn or infant neonatal losses. John’s Meals is designed to provide food for hungry children, who normally go without, on weekends during the school year.
These wonderful causes will be onsite at Hollabaugh Bros. from noon to 4 p.m. Plan to stop by, enjoy concessions from the lunch stands, enjoy sample treats from the 4th of July and even plan a picnic lunch on site or to go! Be sure to take a taste of the renowned hard-cider (good intent cider) that will be available at this time as well.
Hollabaugh Bros., Inc. always has an initiative to do good for the community. A family owned and operated business, Hollabaugh keeps the spirit of family-fun quality alive in all its events. They are even holding a summer reading program for children called Read, Learn, Grow, which takes place from Wednesday, June 18 through Wednesday, Aug. 6 at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. This program is designed to get kids out of the house this summer and onto the farm. Participating children will enjoy a farm-themed/nature-themed story that will occur twice, at the aforementioned times each Wednesday, learn about farming activities in conjunction to that week’s story theme, participate in an activity and take home something special each week from a hand-picked fruit to a hand-made craft and much more. Parents are requested to stay on site during the activity, which lasts approximately an hour. The cost is $6 per child. Parents who pay for all eight weeks in advance get one week free.
