HEBRON — Teachers at the Hebron Station School are sponsoring a harvest dinner on Oct. 23 to raise money for their scholarship program.

“The teachers started a scholarship and they’re always brainstorming ways to raise money,” Principal Tiffany Karnes said.

The event, which will be held at the school from 5 to 7 p.m., will feature spaghetti, desserts and appetizers made from locally-grown produce.

“This is the first year the teachers have done a dinner,” Karnes said of the fundraising efforts. Events such as “Jean Day” on Fridays and bake sales that are held during parent-teacher conferences also raise money.

Karnes said the scholarship fundraisers began last year with a $1,000 check from Hannaford’s “Help School Dollars” program.

The scholarship money is awarded each year to a former Hebron Station School student who has completed his or her first semester of college.

But fresh ingredients for a tasty supper don’t come cheap. Luckily the teachers had some help in that department as well.

“They have partnered with Healthy Oxford Hills, which gave us some money to buy local produce,” Karnes said of items such as apples, pumpkins, lettuce, tomatoes and other seasonal produce purchased for the event.

In addition to the supper, students will entertain diners with musical instruments and several raffles will be held.

The PTA is assisting with the dinner and the community-at-large is welcome to attend, Karnes said.

A suggested donation of $5 per person, or $15 for a family, is requested.
